grimmwire: Science at Burning Man '08 (Default)
Am off bright and early in the morning for Toronto and SF Contario 2. I missed the first one last year, but I hear it's a fun convention. John Scalzi is GOH.

My (rather light) schedule:

Reading - Fri 9:30 - 10 PM Room 207

What is a human? - Sun. 10 AM, Solarium
Kathryn Allan, Glenn Grant, Tony Pi, Hayden Trenholm(M), Allan Weiss
Where exactly are the lines drawn between a cyborg and a robot or android? Does the human brain in a machine make it human? How about a human body animated by a computer brain? Comics and science fiction are littered with machines that act human and humans that are part machine, which is which?
