Why Geeks and Hippies Can Save The World

During an Ignite Seattle event earlier this year Leo Dirac gave a quick passionate presentation on the topic of our intellectual and moral responsibility to develop Transhumanist technologies before the Earths increasingly unstable makeup crumbles our currently elevated state of civilization.

Dirac seems confident there's no "quantum soul," but doesn't offer any reasons for his conclusion. So while I share his enthusiasm, I take a somewhat more skeptical approach to the prospect of uploading human consciousness into computers.
