Last minute meetup! Informal get-together with Natasha Vita-More and Max More

Note change in venue and time!

This weekend, Natasha Vita-More and Max More will be attending the Global Future 2045 International Congress in New York City (http://gf2045.com/). They will be arriving Friday and will be meeting with several members of our group and members of another meetup group (Astonishing Hypothesis - science of consciousness).

Natasha is co-editor and author of The Transhumanist Reader: Classical and Contemporary Essays on the Science, Technology and Philosophy of the Human Future (2012) and designer and author of "Primo Posthuman," a pioneering future whole body prototype. She is also a professor at the University of Advancing Technology (2012-current), and a Fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and the Hybrid Reality Institute. She is currently Chairman of the Board of Directors of Humanity+.

Max More, among other things, is the founder of the Extropy Institute, and has written many articles espousing the philosophy of transhumanism and the transhumanist philosophy of extropy, most importantly his Principles of Extropy. In a 1990 essay "Transhumanism: Toward a Futurist Philosophy", he introduced the term "transhumanism" in its modern sense. He is also president and CEO of the Alcor Life Extension Foundation — the largest provider of cryonics services in the world.

Come and have some drinks with them at the bar (through the door at the back of the lobby), and, of course, be prepared for some fascinating conversation.

Sorry for the short notice.

    Since I live in Connecticut, I am choosing between the 2 meet ups in the city this weekend. Which means I am coming to the one of Sunday, but not the one tonight unfortunately. Have fun.

      I saw the email, but thought it was about Sat. meetup. My mistake, not yours. How long will you be there?
