I want to offer a vision of the future that is unabashed in being grounded in the streets and accessible to ordinary people rather than the wealthy elite of Silicon Valley and and the Oxford-Cambridge union. I want to talk about how technology can improve and empower EVERYONE, not just the people who already have more than enough power already. And unlike other so-called "progressive" transhumanists, I'm much more interested in talking about how technology could end violent repression and brutality, or poverty and hunger, than I am having ivory tower symposiums about the merits of augmenting dolphins or the esoteric rights of as yet non-existent entities while real people continue to suffer and languish every day.

If you're a well-off techie who's only interested in living forever and to-hell-with everyone else, then I am NOT the futurist writer for you. If on the other hand, you want to see a vision of the future that is unapologetically universalist, collectivist, feminist, queer, motivated by love and justice and hell bent on offering a whole NEW vision of human existence rather than a tweeking around the edges for those who are already privileged and ascendant, then I am here to be your voice, and the horse you should be backing in this race to define our narrative, before it's too late.

Anyone who helps me get started on this large undertaking by contributing 7 dollars or more per chapter/topic (future technology and... family, religion, guns, racism, microeconomics, etc) will receive a PDF of a special thank you and foreword to the book, featuring a more personal introduction to your author and a statement of purpose for the work to come.
Goals
$9 of $500 per Topic
In addition to working on the introductory sections of the book, which will explain trans/post/neohumanism to newcomers, this goal will allow me to procure a better camera and repair my PC laptop to engage in more sophisticated video editing and design, which in turn will enable me to generate interviews, call-in discussions, or other exciting and dynamic content for people who are engaged with these ideas already.
