Hey all,

Mac Cowell and I are putting together an after party for H+ Summit
2010 at Sprout, starting at 6pm on Saturday. For all of you who aren't
going to the conference, or even if you are- this is your chance to
mingle with the local citizen scientists, and friends of citizen
science. This year's theme for the conference is "the rise of citizen


"Please join local technologists, hackers, artists, intellectuals,
diybiologists, grad students, h-, and other ilk for socializing and
discussion in the early evening amongst the charming light
manufacturing equipment at Sprout, a local hackerspace. Refreshments
(free beer) and snacks will be provided."

What is DIYbio? "DIYbio is an organization that aims to help make
biology a worthwhile pursuit for citizen scientists, amateur
biologists, and DIY biological engineers who value openness and
safety. This will require mechanisms for amateurs to increase their
knowledge and skills, access to a community of experts, the
development of a code of ethics, responsible oversight, and leadership
on issues that are unique to doing biology outside of traditional
professional settings."

What about H+ Summit? "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."

See you guys there! By the way, I'm speaking on Sunday at the
conference. It'll be streamed live at 3:10pm EDT.
