Global Catastrophic Risks

November 14, 2008

The Global Catastrophic Risks conference is going on today, preceding the Convergence transhumanist conference this weekend. Over at Avatar | Anima, John Carter McKnight was liveblogging the GCR presentations. Some of them look pretty interesting:
* Jamais Cascio on “Risks and Resilience”
* George Dvorsky on Political Extremism
* J. Storrs Hall on “The Weather Machine: Nano-Enabled Climate Control for Earth”
* James Hughes on “Building Transnational Solutions to Global Catastrophic Risks”

I suspect many of these presentations will be posted in full online soon.
