THE TRANSHUMAN CODE BOOK: THE GREATEST TECHNOLOGY ON THE PLANET IS THE HUMAN
Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson
The TransHuman Code Book to be pre-launched at Davos during the TransHuman Code Event . This is a book about a simple truth. But not just any simple truth. This is a truth on which the world’s future hinges. If you and enough other people embrace it, we will have a real shot at ending global plagues like cancer, hunger, poverty and sickness. Innovation will flourish. Democracy will lead. Compassion will reach further. The simple truth is this: the greatest technology on the planet is the human.
TOPICAL AND TO THE POINT
I really enjoyed the book's perspective on how we look at technology as humans and the fear that we are allowing it to direct our emotions in ways that negatively affect society. I can honestly say that I will never look at my phone or other tech devices without thinking about the way I am interacting with people in my personal and professional life and think that there might be more human ways I could be doing it!
