What’s new in science & tech? by David Brin

Okay, let’s turn to the side of civilization that is doing best. Doing spectacularly well in fact, despite a relentless campaign to undermine science.

Why? Because people are noticing how many wondrous accomplishm...

More Than Human? And science roundup! by David Brin

== More than we are? ==

Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture that was founded to allow humans to keep up with the advancements made in machines. The interface is intended to work by augmenting that which makes us human: our brains.  I’ve written extensively, in both science and fiction, about the quandaries of human consciousness and the murky, non-linear paths that might have brought us here.

“If someone needs directions, don’t give them a globe. It’ll merely waste their time. But if someone needs to understand the way things are, don’t give them a map. They don’t need directions; they need to see the big picture.” Seth Godin
