A Collection Of Some of My Humanity 2.0 Musings

Since Google Plus does not have Content Channels (see note at bottom), I'm channelizing my writings about Humanity 2.0 in a separate post so that I can more easily find, and refer others, to my most-shared thoughts on this topic. Some of the postings come from articles on my website, others from posts on G+.

Are You Interested in Humanity's Future?

If you are interested in humankind's future and Humanity 2.0, besides reading my thoughts, you need to, at a bare minimum, start by reading these books (links are affiliate free):

The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology, by Ray Kurzweil (http://www.amazon.com/Singularity-Near-Humans-Transcend-Biology/dp/0143037889/)

The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence, also by Ray Kurzweil (http://www.amazon.com/Age-Spiritual-Machines-Computers-Intelligence/dp/0140282025/)

Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves, by George Church (http://www.amazon.com/Regenesis-Synthetic-Biology-Reinvent-Ourselves/dp/0465021751)

Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think, by +Peter H. Diamandis (http://www.amazon.com/Abundance-Future-Better-Than-Think/dp/1451614217)

Also, Peter has a great TedTalk (+TED) on the topic of abundance: Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future (Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future)


G+ does not have inline HTML for posts -- it does for profiles -- so we have to continue to post messy-looking URLs. So, see my post on Content Channels (https://plus.google.com/112526081195315983895/posts/NMgLqpcaWwv)
