Mike chats with the Naval War College

Mike Treder reports: Tomorrow I’ll be spending the afternoon with a select group of U.S. Navy captains being groomed for admiralty at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. This is the third year in a row I’ve been invited to meet with members of the Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group (SSG), which “generates revolutionary naval warfare concepts.”

Poll: Percent of ‘working-age’ adults employed in 2050 in Europe and N. America

You were all pretty pessimistic, or perhaps optimistic, about the prospects for employment in 2050 in Europe and N. America. The mean response was about 50% adult employment, while a quarter of you predict less than 25% employment. This poll was open for the last two months by the way, so it doesn’t just reflect the current market turbulence.

Two New Special Issues from JET

The IEET and the editors of the Journal of Evolution and Technology (JET) are pleased to announce the publication of two special issues of JET, one brought together by Sky Marsen with the intention of publishing a book on transhumanism, and the other a collection of papers from the IEET’s May 2006 Human Enhancement Technology and Human Rights conference at Stanford University. Together they represent the wide array of issues at play in the debate over human enhancement and our transhuman future, from the daily lived experience of pushing to maximize one’s potential, to the legal, political and philosophical arguments we will need to secure universal access to safe enhancement technologies. Enjoy!
