Speaking of transhumanist misgivings . . .

George Dvorsky summarizes the deservedly varied reactions to the launch of Singularity University right here.

Singularity University will have a nine week summer course open to 30 "graduate students" initially. Cost of tuition: $25,000. Sounds like a pretty expensive summer school.

Also, no word on whether the first 30 "students" to pony up $25K will get in, or whether there is some vetting or selection process--what if 50 or 100 people apply, and establish they can pay the high fees for the program? Who chooses and how does Singularity U. decide who gets in and who doesn't, and upon what criteria, since that isn't mentioned on their website?
