Transhumanism and the Singularity in the Media at Humanity+ @ San Francisco
Since 2005 or so, transhumanism and transhumanist ideas have had a rising profile in the media. What have been our greatest successes of the past few years and how can we repeat them? Which memes are getting the most airtime, and which are being ignored? Is more media exposure always better? What can we do to ensure that we and our organizations are media-savvy? How do we leverage technology to maximize the impact of social media? This talk by the media director of the Singularity Institute will examine these questions and come to concrete conclusions.
