Hi group....first time writing.
Did anyone catch the new Fox series, "Fringe" on TV tonight? "Corporate Monsters" lurk in the background storyline, including rouge entrepreneurs.
THIS group's concerns/ideas/debates may be helpful for transhuman products, as a pre-focus group, or "values-barometer" group by just that corporation! So beware of what we say......we may be used, and not even get paid a cent for our input!!! Think of all the $$$$ being made from drug ads on tv!!!$$!!$$!!!.
It would be interesting to study the demographics of this group and our wide array of input.
Just having fun.....
I love everyone's input, think it's the best entertainment out here and appreciate all your creative minds.
Can't wait to meet some day in person.......yes, in person.......while we can!
