Who will be the first transhumans? Thats an easy one. Super wealthy caucasian capitalists from the United States and Western Europe. They'll retain some nano-engineers and other necessaries but what about the other 99.99999% of the population? What is the motivation to offer them transhuman status? Brotherhood? The same brotherhood that spreads the technological and material wealth of the present? I think Brandon Carter's sounding more prophetic all the time.
