Strategies for Raising Children and Preserving Deep Thinking Skills

Episode 7: Which Smart Phone Makes you a better Trans-human

After a week of being sick, off line with no internet up in the mountains hiding in case of the Mayan apocalypse I finally managed to get enough band width together to post a new episode of #TiredAllOver.  In this episode Lincoln and I continue our discussion about smart phones in particular which one makes a better trans-human.  We did have some technical issues with the tcp/ip connection so it took a lot of editing but still a great episode.  Its mostly a fair comparison about various phones such as Apple’s iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920 and I found the discussion particularly interesting given new Droid DNA campaign (see this commercial on youtube… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYIAaBOb5Bo ) and a little bit of an elevator pitch for transhumanism.

On this episode we are talking with Lincoln Cannon, a prominent futurist in the transhumanist community and president of the MTA about his smart phone, how we uses and how it makes us better then human or ‘Trans’ human. We talk about the state of the technology, the important nature of user experience to the smart phone in particular Lincoln’s iPhone 5. Further we talk lightly about where the technology is going and the next phase in its evolution post today’s current generation of smart phone.

Ideas Need to Evolve for Mainstream Popularity

Transhumanists make me #TiredAllOver at least in that in academia they seem to fight all the time with each other and are all going in different directions… so I wrote an article on how they can get things moving in the same direction and http://www.Transhumanity.net  published it. We will see if they listen.  Here is a link and the first paragraph or so:

Why do you (transhumanists in general) care if mainstream thinking in modern civilization cares about ‘Transhumanism’?

If you talk to random people on the street about transhumanism, you will get eye-squinting and other strange responses.  For the most part, the response will be negative. Transhumanism is not anywhere close to anything the average person cares about.

However, if you could back a few decades and ask someone about being ‘Green’ you would get a similar response to what you get now regarding ‘Transhumanism.’
