Dinner Meeting w/Special Speaker.

Hello Everyone,

Mark your calendar for the MMAH Dinner Meeting to be held on Sunday, May 26, 2013.  In keeping with the “Humanist” component of our organization, we feature educational programs at our monthly Dinner Meetings that cover a broad range of topics of interest to the membership.

This month’s featured speaker is MMAH member Jonathan Stars who will be presenting on Cutting Edge Computer Technology: the merging of man and machine; will we be the Borg?

According to inventor and futurist, Ray Kurzweil (among others), in the next few years our lives will be dramatically changed by advances in robotics, genetics and nanotechnology.  He predicts a technological singularity that will arrive around 2045, where people will need to have their intellects mechanically enhanced in order to keep up with the accelerating changes.

Join entertainer, programmer and author, Jonathan Stars, as we look at both the promise and peril of our future with intelligent robots and machine as well as programmable nanobots.

    I LOVED this meetup. The presenter, Jonathan Stars, was interesting, informative, engaging, and highly entertaining; and his power point presentation was truly fascinating. Need I say more!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
