New Column Up

Part One of my latest two-part Progressive Futures column has been published over on BetterHumans. It's called, "The Trouble With 'Transhumanism'". Check it out and let me know what you think. The somewhat more constructive and positive-toned concluding Part Two will arrive early next week.

I read your article on Betterhumans and very much enjoyed it. I find it strange that more people don't comment on the articles there.
Anyway, as a studies of Futures Studies and being faced with calling myself a professional Futurist, I can relate to the frustration of using a word so loaded as Transhumanist.
Futures Studies, while the name has been around for a few decades and there exists a number of graduate degrees in the world with that name, is still very ill-defined and seen in the public eye as something much more presumptious than the professional practice of Futurism really is.

I look forward to your conclusion next week.
