Will Bona Fide Life Evolve from within Human Technology (and what are the consequences of this happening)?
Bruce Damer, DigitalSpace Corporation
Bruce and Galen arrived in HUMlab to close the invigning on Thursday, as well as participated in the international symposium on Friday. On a personal note, Bruce and Galen have taken time to get to know us all throughout the course the event and over the events of this weekend and we all have greatly enjoyed their warmth, stimulating conversation, and thoughts on digital culture, art and life. They are an inspiring part of our HUMlab friend network and I feel very privileged to have had the chance to walk along the river with both and talk about everything from shared cultures to baking this weekend. If you have a chance to come to today’s seminars, don’t miss them. And as always, if you can’t be here in person, please join us online. Both talks will be streamed on our streaming page, http://stream.humlab.umu.se/
