I'll take your lead, Nick.
Right now, I'm doing book signing and radio/print interviews for the 2nd edition of my self-published book _Create/Recreate: The Third Millennial Culture_. I'm very delighted with the content of the book -- more essays, less images. I'm currently planning a signing at a very well known bookstore Midnight Special, in Santa Monica, and also one in Silicon Valley. I will read from my book about the beginnings of transhumanism and how to influence culture by spreading positive creative extropian memes.
I would like to invite those of you who have writings, essays, books, etc. to send me your work and to possibility join me at these events. I think it would be quite wonderful event!
Please contact me privately.
