Informal lunchtime get-together: ideas and plans for the H+ year ahead
The next ExtroBritannia event is scheduled for Saturday the 17th of
January 2009; 1:00pm - 2:00pm. Venue: the Penderell's Oak pub, 283
High Holborn, London WC1V 7HP (nearest tube stop: Holborn). The event
is free and everyone's welcome.
Anyone interested in Transhumanism and/or Extropian themes is welcome
to join a lunchtime gathering in the pub that's been described as the
spiritual home of transhumanism in the UK. If it's your first
ExtroBritannia, look out for a table with a copy displayed of Eric
Drexler's book, "Engines of creation". This get-together is being
scheduled to fit in the lunch break of the day-long "Weird science"
event organised by the Centre For Inquiry, London, that's taking place
that day in the nearby Conway Hall. During our get-together, we'll
have the chance to discuss ideas for H+ meetings and activities in the
UK later in the year. We can also review how H+ fits with the Bad
Science approach, and possible synergies with the Centre for Inquiry.
Note: anyone who wants to attend the lectures of the Bad Science event
will need to register separately - and pay a small fee to the CFI
London organisers. Use the folowing link:
Note: Participants from the Bad Science event will be retiring to
Penderell's Oak after the Conway Hall lectures, from 4pm, so there
will be a chance to take part in discussions at that stage too.
