Radical Evolution

Filed under: Education and Technology — Ken @ 1:40 pm

Book Cover of Radical Evolutio    Live blogging from CALI 2008: Joel Garreau is a student of culture, values, and change. Most recently he is the author of  Radical Evolution  Joel is a reporter and editor at The Washington Post and principal of The Garreau Group, the network of his best sources committed to understanding who we are, how we got that way, and where we’re headed, worldwide. He has served as a senior fellow at the University of California at Berkeley and George Mason University, and is an affiliate of the James Martin Institute for Science and Civilization at Oxford.

OK. Let’s see where this goes. Joel is describing a scenario of super humans, enhanced human beings, silent messaging…this is interesting. He’s arguing that Moore’s Law is leading us to a place where this kind of ability will be possible. Look around, he suggests, Barry Bonds, Dolly the sheep, brain implants, these technologies are here and are advancing fast.

I think I’ll read his book.

  2. Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you
    knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in
    this article? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!
