#12 Andrej Pejic - Androgynous Model - heralding a post-gender future? by Hank Pellissier

Gazing at the ravishing photos of Andrej Pejic, I’m stirred with envious confusion. Why does this tall skinny XY like me get to be so much prettier? Does his effeminate success - inflaming catwalks in both men and women’s high fashion - predict a fusion of two polarized genders, or a third construct? What does the androgynous Bosnian represent in post-genderism?

#13: The Radicalness Of 3D Printing by Valkyrie McGill

Way back in February of 2011, I wrote an extensive article for H+ on 3D printing and how it would allow a transition between an economy based on material “value” and scarcity to one based on nonmaterial “value” and abundance.

Robots Will Steal Your Job, but That’s OK TEDxVienna

“The theme of TEDxVienna 2012 was “Instanity”. Derived from the words ‘instant’ and ‘insanity’, it symbolises the spirit of our technologically minted times: everything now. Technological development has become instant, but could that drive us insane?” - Pistono

Treat violence as public health issue by Arthur Caplan

The mass murder of 20 children and six adults Friday in Newtown, Conn., has provoked yet another round of recrimination, finger pointing and breast-beating. Was the shooter mentally deranged? If there was more gun control, would this have happened? Did violent video games play any role? What we fervently want as we continue to reel from a story whose misery seems to know no bounds is to find a clear cause - a reason why this happened - so that we can fix it.

Nexus by Ramez Naam, Reviewed by IEET’s Katherine McCarthy by Katherine McCarthy
