I've been interested in this topic since reading Ed Regis's "Great Mambo Chicken and the Transhuman Condition"

What's the thing that excites you more about where the future's headed?

Robots doing all the work.

What's the thing that terrifies you most about where the future's headed?

Robots doing all the work.

How would you describe your religious beliefs?

Devout agnostic

What Dave is saying about this Meetup Group

I fear that meaning, and most likely purpose as well, has no future.

    Second Sunday Poetry Series

    Dear Dave, thank you for your message. Glad you are coming! The reading series has been fun to do so far. If audience grows quite a bit, I might eventually go from having 3 features to just one. We'll see. Happy holidays and see you Jan. 13.

    Here is a link to that poll I mentioned:


    You should be able to see the poll if you go to the "more" drop-down menu under the group title and then to "polls".

    I'm glad the timing was so appropriate.

    "If I don't get another outlet for my poetry I may bring one to the workshop."

    I'm not sure I understand: did you mean that if you don't get another outlet, you'll bring it to the PC workshop, or to this group? (sorry about my susceptibility to confusion)

    You seem very funny; I really, really look forward to your poetry! ("I write therefor iamb." Nice XD)

    I'm also glad that you mentioned the villanelle form because I hadn't known of it before and now I like it particularly.

    I don't dislike poems of ideas (and even if i did, i think i would still probably like the ideas you might come up with), and I feel (at least somewhat strongly feel) that people who would typically be attracted to this group would appreciate quite a wide scope of poetry
