DEAR GOOGLE GLASS WEARER,

 

Congratulations! You're one of the privileged few who've scored a pair of GoogleGOOG +1.90% Glass, the futuristic eyewear that puts a tiny, voice-controlled, Wi-Fi-enabled computer on your face. It's the most anticipated gadget since the iPad, iPhone or iAnything, really. And the best part? You members of Google's "Explorer Program"—mostly app developers and supernerds—will be testing Glass in the wild months before the general public will get to wear it, fingers crossed, at the end of the year. 

 

Soon you'll be able to view emails, text messages and maps on a translucent screen hovering in the upper-right corner of your peripheral vision. Breaking news alerts will appear right before your eyes. You'll snap photos just by saying, "OK Glass, take a picture." In other words, you'll be able to perform tasks everyone else has to do with their grubby hands and filthy smartphones—what Neanderthals!...

I am looking forward to it. I've tried them on and think I could use them on a daily basis.

22 Ways To Use Twitter With Bloom's Taxonomy ~ teachbytes

22 Ways To Use Twitter With Bloom's Taxonomy ~ teachbytes | Kuehleborn | Scoop.it

by Aditi Rao

 

"A few of my faculty members have been asking about ways they can use Twitter in the classroom recently. As I helped them integrate Twitter into their own classrooms, I started developing a running list of different ways Twitter could be used and quickly realized that the best way to show Twitter’s value in the classroom would be to tie it back to Bloom’s taxonomy.

The Transhumanist Delusion

The Transhumanist Delusion | Kuehleborn | Scoop.it

While we can measure the degree to which technologies transcend physical and physiological boundaries, we can merely speculate about the ethical consequences of these developments and about their effect on human self-perception. The merging of human consciousness and technology changes not only the latter, but also the former. And the question is whether technology will become more human in the long run, or whether humans will become more technical.

luiy's curator insight, May 6, 2013 5:50 AM
A unique evolutionary moment

The human body sits squarely at the center of this debate. Until today, we have largely conceived of technology as a collection of external objects. Now, technology enters the body, merges with it, becomes a constitutive part of its host. This presents us with a unique moment in evolutionary history. The biggest drivers of change can be found in the military and the pharmaceutical sectors of the economy. And the big unknown is whether we will be able to put the new possibilities to good use.

 

New ideologies have emerged that frame the techno-narrative and justify its propagation. The most influential among them is the ideology of transhumanism, a worldview predicated on the notion of transcendence. By merging man and machine, transhumanists hope to open up new avenues of human development. A core group of transhumanist thinkers has found a home at Oxford University, from where they fight against the humanist desire to protect and examine humanity in its current form...

 

 

Man, machine, industry

This changes everything: Not only our human self-perception (which has always been important for our conception of present and future) but also our definition of civilization. Some of these developments proceed at a breathtaking pace, and it’s only justified to ask whether members of the transhumanist vanguard and advocates of “inversive” technologies actually grasp the consequences of their work.

 

Hence the following assertion: The emerging global neuro-technological industry is more significant than all current political uprisings and military conflicts. Experiments are good. Careless tinkering with human nature is not.

 

The crucial point is that we simply don’t know enough about ourselves to speedily abandon our current view of humanity and to turn ourselves – as some transhumanists desire – into cyborg creatures. Our confusion starts at the fundamental level: For example, what does it mean to “know”? Is it possible to transfer all knowledge online if we can develop algorithms with adequate levels of sophistication? Can knowledge become de-corporealized?
