Well judging from my search log entries recently it looks as if they must have recently re-aired the Visions of the Future episode (in the UK, possibly elsewhere) in which I had an approximately two-minute interview bit.
If you found this site as a result of seeing that programme, please read my post If You Saw Me On The BBC....
The short version is that while I don't regret taking part in the "Visions of the Future" project (it was a learning experience in many respects, that's for sure), I no longer identify as a transhumanist.
Mind you, this does not mean I am uninterested in longevity, robots, human modification, etc. I still find all those topics bloody fascinating. It just means I don't relate to the "transhumanist subculture" anymore and haven't for some time.
I really didn't fully know what I was getting into when I was associating with all that stuff and I've a feeling I'm going to be paying for it (in terms of having to write posts like this every so often, for one thing) for many years to come. Which is my own fault, but still.
In other words, if you want to discuss anything with me (which is fine, comments and emails are always welcome provided you're not a spammer or troll or other ne'er-do-well), please realize that people are not static in time, and please don't insist on treating me like I'm still living in 2007 and couldn't possibly have refined my views or changed my mind about anything in the past three or four years.
