The Singularity is Near

  • Apr 5, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Time for new meeting!

As per the suggestion at our last meetup, this will be a more structured discussion. Below I list the tentative plan and schedule for the meeting.

Book discussion: We talked about assigning a book for everyone to read for discussion and debate. I would like to propose The Singularity is Near, since that's one we should all probably read anyways. Other suggestions are welcome.

5 minute debate: This was something that came up that I thought would be kind of cool. We take turns proposing topics that would be the subject of a short debate. These topics can involve anything related to futurism or transhumanism and could be open discussion or between two of us. Disagreements are more fun so don't be afraid to propose controversial subjects.

If you have other suggestions for activities please propose them in the comments below. Also, I have left the location blank for the time being so please let me know where we would like to hold this.

Join or login to comment.

    We could have it at my house in City Heights. Is that convenient for everyone?

    As we haven't decided on a meeting place I have no objection to holding it at an apartment. If that doesn't work for someone please say so and we'll see what we can do to work this out of everyone.

    I would love to attend your meeting. I have followed the singularity movement ever since Venor Vinge at SDSU first wrote about it in his presentation to NASA back in 1993. I have been member of the Futurist Society since 1973. I directed a project at IRS,University of Alabama for five years. [masked]) called Project Outer Limits to Research and Explore the outer limits of Human potential . At the end of the first year we wrote a positional paper that blew them out of their saddles and my life was changed 180 degrees. However, my drivers license does not allow me to drive after dark. I live in Lexington Senior Apartments in El Cajon. If your looking for a site. I believe I could arrange to use our meeting room here. However, I realize that other members may not want to drive out to El Cajon. If you would like a copy of the positional paper contact me at [masked]
