Why are you interested in joining SD Transhumanists? (All questions are optional but appreciated)

This group seems big on self-improvement as viewed through a lenses of technology, metaphysics, nutrition, and philosophy

What do you plan to get from being a part of SD Transhumanists?

I'd like to share and learn new ideas from others on this topic, as I find it fascinating

What types of events would you be interested in attending?

Lectures, discussions, or demos of new tech are always fun.

What interests you about transhumanism and/or related subjects?

Well there is always that spark you get from movies or games since you were a kid, but I've always been big into self-improvement, as it levels the playing field, as you discover new ways of overcoming challenges in your life. I know nutrition, for example, has helped me live a much fuller life. Immortal lead characters in movies often struggle with getting bored, but I'd do it in a heartbeat. On the other hand, on a metaphysical level, we are already immortal anyway, most people just don't know it. :-)

Are you interested in organizing events?

Organizing events is not my strength, but I'm always willing to come and help setup and teardown for any weekend events. I am up in Orange County as well.

Introduction

Hi, I've been into technology, nutrition, and metaphysics since I can remember, and am a big fan of Kurzweil/Singularity­. I have worked in IT since 1999 but have been into computers since I was a kid.
