Captain Cyborg invades Second Life

Appearing this afternoon in Sadville

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Kevin Warwick - aka Captain Cyborg - will this afternoon be entertaining the crowds on Second Life's Uvvy Island with a chat on the benefits of linking your brain to "that of an intelligent machine network" entitled "Upgrading Humans: Why not?"

The appearance has been organised by the "Second Life Chapter of the World Transhumanist Association", and our Kev will ponder some of the "technical difficulties" associated with the technology and will "also consider some of the ethical and social questions that arise from this exciting area of research".

The good captain's choice of avatar is not noted, but we have no doubt he will select an imposing Robocop-style outfit capable of repelling even the most concerted flying penis attack. ®
