I would like to express the general preference that it would be great if the conference were temporally (and ideally spatially) located near another conference of transhumanist interest. Especially for people who come from oversea, that would be a way of increasing the payoff for making the long journey. I'm thinking of things like a Foresight Conference, the World Future Society Assembly (which is Jul29-Aug 1, Washington) or something like that.
