Introduction

I've been an h+ advocate, since before way back in the early 80s. My goal is to 'canonize', or find out what everyone thinks, believes, and values at canonizer.com.

Are you currently a full or part-time student? (It's ok if you're not--we still welcome you to join us!)

I'm not a student, but would love to participate, and help out with any events, where appropriate.

If you are a student, which school do you attend?

No answer yet

Have you read any books on singularity/transhumanism? If so, which ones? (e.g., The Singularity Is Near, The Age of Spiritual Machines, etc.)

Most of them, especially Kurzweil, Tippler, Morovec...

Do you have any technical or engineering training? If so, what type? (ps--It's TOTALLY okay if your background is more philosophical than technical.)

I'm a professional software engineer, and hobby philosopher (esp, philosophy of mind see the "Consciousness Survey Project" at canonizer.com)

What are you hoping to gain from this group? (e.g., an opportunity to publicize transhumanism within Utah, meeting like-minded people, learning more about the singularity, working with others to directly develop convergent technologies, etc.)

Just want to help push the movement forward any way I can, and meet more people.

What Brent Allsop is saying about this Meetup Group

It's where the future is.

    Hi Brent. Meetup is hitting me up for money to keep this group going. I don't have any. If this is worth it to you, I can sign the singularity group over to you...
