Lot's of potentials here. Primarily, I'm interested in "hacking" to improve/augment individual cognitive functions as well as collective states of consciousness. I'm interested in both technically direct (electro-magnetic, bio-chemical, neurological, etc) and semiotically in-direct (frame narrative, story telling, knowledge interface constructs, etc) methods of hacking conscious states.
I have lots of experience with Entheogens, altered states, EEG, and binaural beats. I've worked with Posit Science and the Brain Plasticity Institute to produce interactive "brain training games" based on neuroscience research (primarily around improving attention and memory). A few of my own projects (associated with consciousness): CogSpace : Collectove Mind Map of Cognition and Consciousness [ http://michaelgaio.com/cogspace ] AION System: Archetypal Interface for Ontological Networking: a collaborative technology project delivering methods of enhancing cosmological, philosophical, scientific, and mythical perspectives of our conscious collective evolution (history). [ http://aionsystem.net ] Synchronicity Network: Collective Archive of Meaningful Coincidence, a database of people's documented synchronicity events [ http://synchronicity.net ] DataTemple: Information Sublimation of Collective Data into Transdisciplinary Cyber-Semiotic Language

Really great and eclectic group of people gathering around a field that has such awesome potentials. Nice hosting space too! ;)
