2012: Envisioning Transhumanity

Thank You

All of us would like to thank the San Diego community of transhuman enthusiasts for making this conference a success.  Volunteers, speakers, sponsors, artists and attendees: we produced a conference from the grass-roots on important and interesting issues, and made new friendships and connections in our minds which will help us all create the very best future.
