I'm really looking forward to participating in this event, the venue and
focus being refreshingly different from so many other transhumanist
conferences. The collection of speakers is large, diverse, and impressive. I
hope lots of east coasters will attend, as well as some from further afield.
See you in New York!

> On *May 14-15 2011, Humanity+* International is partnering with *Parsons
> The New School for Design* in New York City to produce *Transhumanism
> Meets Design*, a conference exploring emerging technology,
> transdisciplinary design, culture and media theory, and biotech.
> The conference brings together futurists, cyberneticists, life
> extensionists, singularity advocates, A[G]I and robotics experts, human
> enhancement specialists, inventors, ethicists, philosophers, and theorists
> to meet with the creativity and rigorous scholarship of design at Parsons.
> Technological innovation permeates all aspects of society—from tiny water
> purification packets and portable LifeStraw filters, to GPS tracking
> devices, wearable Timex iPods and Gel-Kinsei high-tech running shoes.
> Because technology and society evolve together, it has become increasingly
> important to develop a greater understanding of how technology is shaping
> the course of our lives. We are faced with a need to continuously become
> more innovative in harnessing and controlling technology’s acceleration.
> Nevertheless, innovation develops in stages. When it speeds up, we are faced
> with an urge to become ever more resourceful. When it slows down there is an
> impending impatience to compete with the exuberance of China. There is no
> doubt that even the most conservative thinkers agree that we have stepped
> into an era of a massive change. The good news is that our human diversity
> continues to spawn inventiveness and novelty.
