How It Feels through Glass - Google Glass Official Promo


I am supposed to have sales resistance, I understand PR, I understand our surveillance state, I understand the push toward transhumanism. I hate google. They are going to make a borg of me.

I'll wait

I'll wait for the one with stereoscopic cameras.

I'm already a cyborg. I just wish I didn't have to charge my leg so often.

Going to?

fishy, I hate to break it to you, but the process of transforming us into the borg is already well under way.

Technology has turned the tables on us. We work for it now, not the other way around.

Someone just sent this to me, which looks interesting:

What Technology Wants, by Kevin Kelly.

In this provocative book, one of today's most respected thinkers turns the conversation about technology on its head by viewing technology as a natural system, an extension of biological evolution. By mapping the behavior of life, we paradoxically get a glimpse at where technology is headed-or "what it wants." Kevin Kelly offers a dozen trajectories in the coming decades for this near-living system. And as we align ourselves with technology's agenda, we can capture its colossal potential. This visionary and optimistic book explores how technology gives our lives greater meaning and is a must-read for anyone curious about the future.

According to Kelly, this is the natural course of evolution. Humans are an intermediate step. Melding with the borg is inevitable. These google glasses are an intermediate step as well. Kelly is optimistic about it. Bill Joy is less so: Why the future doesn't need us.

Freaky. I'm not sure how to process it.

I don't want my kids born into bondage. The best way for me to prevent that, I think, is not to have them.

On further contemplation

these could be an amazing tool for liberty, if people can upload what they see in real time...

The push for transhumanism is about to be "in your face" it seems. Or on it...
They have been working this into our collective psyche for a long time, and wrapping it in the cloak of "technological advances."
I don't know what to think of bringing children into this, other than to say if we don't leave room for a better future, we doom ourselves to a worse one. They go to great lengths to break family bonds, making parenting not a sport for wussies, but you are no wussy.
I guess I am feeling more optimistic today. The thing about not having kids is it will leave a question mark in your mind that can never go away. Having kids is a crap shoot, you might have a terribly disabled child, you might have a defiant child, you might have a neo-con... lol! But you might have a reason to live when things are hardest, you might find the inspiration to fight one more day, even when you think you are spent... I hope you have at least one kid, Nystrom. The next generation is going to need the wisdom of the lad who grew up busing tables at his daddy's internet pub.
