9781496073310: Best of H+ Magazine, Vol.1: 2008-2010

Best of H+ Magazine, Vol. 1 is edited by counterculture legend R.U. Sirius, and brought to you by futurist organization Humanity+. It is our great privilege to live in an era when H+ – the extension of humanity beyond its traditional biological form – is not merely fantasy but a reasonable description of the practical, everyday unfolding of science and technology. H+ Magazine has provided a venue for edgy, creative thinking about H+ technologies and ideas since it was founded in 2008. This volume collects some of the best H+ Magazine articles from the magazine’s first few years, when it was edited by legendary futurist R.U. Sirius.
