Subject: Transhumanism 2.0 for the Brits

I ran across the following item elsewhere, which raises many 
questions.  For one, it was understandable that the Extropy Inst. got 
boring and its founders abandoned it to do their own thing by themselves, 
so what is this presentation in London about?  Do Americans have to commute 
to hear the news?  And that word ... "Proactionary" ... does this have 
anything to do with the blind promotion of untested technology, such as 
trying to bring about the Singularity?  Scary.  Maybe somebody can give us 
all a meaningful heads-up on this?  Where's Max?
