Part 2 with Mikey Siegel. One of my favorite guests on the show, Mikey is a robotics engineer turned Mindful Cyborg and the creator of the booming Consciousness Hacking meetup groups. Seriously awesome.
Mikey is back on the show to share some of his current projects, his realistic and optimistic vision for the future, and in discussion with Chris about the state of tech + awareness

Damien Williams back on for round two: this one more focused on his thinking and work in Magick and the Occult, and especially how it ties in to tech. Very cool perspectives you may not have heard before.
Damien Williams back on the show. This week is more about the religious and occult aspects of the information society we currently inhabit. Fresh definitions and understandings of magick and the occult, musings on the type of future we actually want to live in, and on the practice of magick and the will.

Really good set of episodes. I am tempted when the time comes to have a "laying out of the dead data" performed, in the tradition of Zoroastrianism. Just put it all out there and let the vultures devour it.

Hello Potential Transhumanists!
 
To those of you who have already been involved in our conference planning, greetings again.
 
To those of you for whom this is a new concept, I hope this finds you well and that this email will arouse your interest in our exciting and upcoming conference.
 
In 2013, Juniata College agreed to host a conference on Transhumanism.  This is a 4-day summer conference happening the last week of July on our beautiful campus in Pennsylvania.
 
The conference seeks to bring many different groups together in novel combinations.  It will combine investigations of transhumanism with some cultural experiments.  It will foster various technology experiments like circuit bending and transcranial magnetic stimulation all the while opening the door to philosophical and religious discussions on the implications of the digital revolution for the future of our species.  And it will mix high school hackers with college students looking to invent the next big thing in human life-enhancement and with entrepreneurs already knee-deep in the tech industry.  We think this unique combination will make for some cross-generational creativity.
 
We really want to unleash human creativity for the human future!
 
I want to alert you to an upcoming milestone in our preparations.  We are slated to go live with our webpages beginning November 1, 2014.  This means our website will begin accepting registrations for the conference and accepting paper and project proposals for the many sessions we plan.
 
- Are you interested in regenerative health issues?  There is a place for you.
 
- Are you interested in wearable technology for health and self-understanding?  There is a place for you?
 
- Are you worried about a potential surveillance society?  There is a place for you.
 
- Do do you see religious potential in a new transhuman movement?  There is a place for you.
 
- Do you want to experiment with personal drones for fun and business?  There is a place for you.
 
- Do you think 3D printing will revolutionize American life?  There is a place for you.     
 
This list barely scratches the surface of the amazing list of exciting topics that await you at this conference!
 
You can already visit our site at: transjuniata  
You can join our online discussion groups on both Google+ and Facebook from the conference webpages.
 
And of course you can email me at don.braxton@gmail.com or my delightful co-chair Alison Earnhart at earnhah2@gmail.com.
 
So take a look at our webpages, have your mind expanded, and then expand it for others!  You won't regret it!
 
Feel free to share this posting with others you think might be interested.

Unique and refreshing perspectives in this one. Having him on again next week to hopefully go more into the occult and religious aspects to all of this!

Eleanor Saitta works professionally as a computer security expert, but more generally she "looks at how systems break" - computer, social, infrastructural, legal, and more. She comes on the show today to share a unique perspective on surveillance / security culture that we have found ourselves enmeshed in. Don't miss this one (or part 2!).
