[extropy-chat] Improving past "normality"

Some people support technology designed to overcome handicaps, but oppose
technology designed to improve humans beyond the "normal" human state. This
New York Times article, about a controversy at Gallaudet University for the
deaf, points out that some deaf people insist that since they consider
themselves as good as anyone, they do not need to be improved by technology.


As it happens, the technology under discussion is the first effective direct
brain implant.

Quite illuminating for the general question of transhumanism!
