and yes, Valkyrie Ice wrote a review of the book that will appear on hplus this week, so you can check that out over there. Valkyrie and I will have a nice nasty bickering back and forth about it that we welcome other participants to join.

Sounds interesting.  I enjoyed the Humanity+ conference at Parsons Design a couple of months ago.

However I searched for it on Amazon.com and failed to find it.  I’d be especially likely to read it if it’s accessible as an eBook, e.g. Kindle.

Oh ... there it is ... on Smashwords.

I bought the book.  It’s not expensive so don’t be cheap.  I really enjoyed the essays.
