H+ Magazine - MIND and MAN: Getting Mental with Giulio Prisco

H+ Magazine - MIND and MAN: Getting Mental with Giulio Prisco


I have been interviewed by Natasha for H+ Magazine. See H+ Magazine - MIND and MAN: Getting Mental with Giulio Prisco. We talk about a bit of everything, telepresence, cyberspaces and metaverses, the transhumanist movement and the enabling role of telecom technology, life extension, mind uploading (oops sorry, substrate-independent minds), transcending biology and becoming substrate-independent minds, Randal and Suzanne's ASIM initiative (Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds, see carboncopies.org) including the online workshops and the recent mixed-reality ASIM 2010 Conference in San Francisco, moving from biological to robotic and virtual bodies, and the Teleplace -based teleXLR8 project, a “telepresence community for cultural acceleration” focused on science and technology education and outreach (with a transhumanist flavor). Perhaps we talk also of other things, the article is long.
