If you can’t make it to Harvard this weekend, June 12-13, you’ll want to catch the live webcast of the H+ Summit: “Rise of the Citizen Scientist”. No link yet, but presumably they’ll be putting it on the event homepage before it starts. Also presumably they will post the videos somewhere for longer-term viewing. UPDATE: HERE’S THE URL FOR STREAMING: http://hplussummit.com/streaming.html
The H+ Summit is a two day event that explores how humanity will be radically changed by technology in the near future. Visionary speakers will explore the potential of technology to modify your body, mind, life, and world.
What will it mean to be a human in this next phase of technological development? How can we prepare now for coming changes?
We foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition and overcoming such constraints as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, lack of resources, and our confinement to the planet earth. The possibilities are broad and exciting. The H+ Summit will provide a venue to discuss these future scenarios and to hear exciting presentations by the leaders of the ongoing H+ (r)evolution.
I was at their December 2009 conference in southern California and it was great. They’re planning another one for December 2010, again in southern California. —Chris Peterson
