Nat Sones's insight:
Uploading your brain into a computer has long been a nerd's dream. As a nerd, it has long been mine. But the real issues are of course extraordinary. What makes a mind? Is it just a brain in a box, or does it have to be physical as well? What's the real meaning of the balance between psycho and soma? What can be stored, what is lost? Who owns a stored brain? And can you decant it from one body to another? Just asking these question is hard enough. Answering them is in real terms impossible.

Traditionally, cities have been viewed as the sum of their locations – the buildings, monuments, squares and parks that spring to mind when we think of ‘New York’, ‘London’ or ‘Paris’.
In The new science of cities, Michael Batty argues that a more productive approach is to think of cities in terms of flows, connections and relationships – in other words, as a network. Places like Times Square or the Champs Elysée are not big, famous or busy because of their inherent qualities, but rather because they sit at the intersections of movements of people, wealth, information, or power...
