(The Electric Warrior) - "What does a posthuman look like? Whatever it wants to look like." So says Mac Tonnies, author of the Posthuman Blues. He's probably right. In a world where appearance is predicated by software algorithms and computerized virtual reality, anything goes. I asked Mac what the title of his blog meant: "'Posthuman' denotes a stage after 'transhuman,' when intelligence is infinitely more durable and tenacious than it is now. I think we're in a basically larval form at present."
