Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance

Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance National Science Foundation and the Department of Commerce sponsored a workshop in 2001 December and released a 405 page document recently. Several journalists then commented on the report. Recently What utopia can technology deliver? on zdnet, earlier When brains meet computer brawn on cnet and Unfogging the Future on techcentralstation. Was there any public debate following these predictions or was it too much to absorb?

I agree with you entirely, thanks. The different presentations are of very different quality. Interestingly it's much easier to dismiss the predictions of those people whose research field one is very familiar with than others.

In any case, this turned out to be a boring topics for a Sunny Saturday. But at least MetaFilter now has the links to these intriguing documents and three related commentaries.
