This month: Disruptive Technology and the Nature of the Singularity

Date: Jan 28, 2011 at 10:00 pm MST. Location: SecondLife, an online environment, []

The Mormon Transhumanist Association is hosting a series of open discussions on various topics relating to the intersection of Mormonism and Transhumanism. This month, the discussions will investigate the rise of disruptive technologies and the nature of the Singularity - how all of these things will affect us. Everyone interested is eagerly invited to attend. Bring your ideas or questions to discuss, or just bring yourself and listen. After a brief introduction of the topic we will have a discussion where everyone is free to participate, share their perspectives and ask questions.

The discussion will be hosted in the online environment Second Life. An internet-connected computer with speakers and a microphone -- as either a headset or with echo cancellation -- are prerequisites, while the SecondLife software may be freely downloaded from the internet. If you do not yet have the software, download it ahead of time from [www.secondlife].com.

Hosted by David Foster, MTA Director
