Why Am I Writing This Blog?

Transhumanism, abbreviated as H+ or h+, is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming thehuman condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. This blog is meant to follow developments in this most important area of evolution, and to dissolve some of the myths and needless fears that surround it.

In addition, this blog is part of an experiment in which six very different individuals, all of whom live (or more accurately WILL live at some point in the future) in the same house, and...uh...I'm not sure what the plan is, but it was called "The Crooked Circle" but now it's called "Her Crooked House" and the name may change again. I don't really see how I can "collaborate" with the others, given that my views on most things are radically different and my interests are technological rather than "artistic," but I'm told this blog should also be about the "collision between different projects and different points of view."

*Cough* Yeah, whatever that means.


  1. Uhm, what if I don't want to be a robot?

  2. In a sense, you more than most people, already are. Think about how much of your time is spent online, interacting with phone and tablet devices. How often to you interact with people text message, instagram, or webcam? Now, how often (as a ratio) do you interact with people face to face, actually talking, in person? I'd wager that that ratio is at least 10:1.

    Sorry...but you already are.

  3. I always suspected Valerie was nefarious fembot.

  4. When are you going to post pics of you playing the oboe? That long phalic oboe.
