Welcome 2011 – what will the future hold?

Filed under: aging, futurist, Humanity Plus, intelligence, rejuveneering — David Wood @ 6:42 pm

As 2010 turns into 2011, let me offer some predictions about topics that will increasingly be on people’s minds, as 2011 advances.

(Spoiler: these are all topics that will feature as speaker presentations at the Humanity+ UK 2011 conference that I’m organising in London’s Conway Hall on 29th January.  At time of writing, I’m still waiting to confirm possibly one or two more speakers for this event, but registration is already open.)

Apologies for omitting many other key emerging tech-related trends from this list.  If there’s something you care strongly about – and if you live within striking distance of London – you’ll be more than welcome to join the discussion on 29th January!


  1. Happy new year to all.
    In seasonal spirit I have now made my latest book “The Goldilocks Effect”
    available for free download in Ebook formats.

    I believe, dw, that, along with some others you found “Unusual Perspectives a “hard read”. TGE is much more concise.

    While it touches on all the points you make in your post the non-anthropocentric treatment gives a quite different take on these matters than the standard fare of the transhumanists.

    Perhaps less comfortable. But then, maybe the universe just ain’t configured for human comfort? [“Perish the thought” I hear you cry!

    TGE can be downloaded from the “Unusual Perspectives” website.
