The most innovative Sunday of the year
On May 20, The New York Times Magazine is sponsoring the 2nd annual "Sunday with the Magazine" event, which will feature conversations with leading innovators and thinkers in fields such as politics, business, fashion, design, food, technology and entertainment. The slate of speakers is still being filled, so until then, the New York Times is asking that you sign up for a series of free e-mail updates about the event. (The two lead sponsors for the event are Design With Reach and the American Chemistry Council, so methinks that the event will be heavy on designers and scientists). Sounds cool - but this being New York, the event will likely be over-booked, over-priced and over-hyped.

Upload your mind? Here's a reality check on the Singularity.
- Though computer engineers claim to know what human consciousness is, many neuroscientists say that we're nowhere close to understanding what it is, or its source.
- Scientists are currently trying to upload human minds to silicon chips, or re-create consciousness with algorithms, but this may be hubristic because we still know so little about what it means to be human.
- Is transhumanism a journey forward or an escape from reality?
