Got a tip about an interesting magazine from a member over at AF (http://forums.abrahadabra.com/index.php):

Edition #1 Fall 2008 (http://www.hplusmagazine.com/hplusmag_fall_2008.pdf) (Pdf)

A web-based quarterly magazine, h+ covers the scientific, technological, and cultural developments that are challenging and overcoming human limitations. Recently, there has been a growing and evolving public discourse about new technological trends and possibilities. Scientists and edge thinkers are talking about – and working on - slowing or ending aging; body and brain enhancement; biological control of the genome and the evolutionary process; and the possibility of a technological singularity brought on by AI… to name just a few of the interests and obsessions of this new edge tech culture. h+ magazine is all over it. - source (http://www.hplusmagazine.com/)
Ah, that's really cool. I'll take a looksie at it.
Another good source for info is the KurzweilAI (http://www.kurzweilai.net/index.html?flash=1) site and their newsletter.

Transhumanism is an awesome subject. The future of the human race will be very interesting, and it makes one wonder just what it is/will be to be human.

Thanks for the magazine link, it looks good.
