Yesterday, April 9, the 2016 Annual Conference of the Mormon Transhumanist Association was held in in Provo, Utah, at the Provo City Library. The Conference reaches beyond Mormonism and is the de-facto annual conference of the religious/spiritual transhumanist community. The Conference was live-streamed and the recording of the stream is online on YouTube. You can watch more than nine hours of awesome talks at the intersection of transhumanism and religion.
I wasn’t able to attend in person, so I watched the live stream yesterday, and today I will watch the recording. And so should you – most of the talks are really great. The professionally edited videos of all talks will be available online soon.
Live video streaming was interrupted during keynote speaker Rosalynde Welch’s talk, so there are two separate videos:
First part – from the beginning to Rosalynde Welch’s talk (until interruption).
Second part – from Rosalynde Welch’s talk (resumed) to the end.
The Conference was opened by the outgoing President of the MTA Lincoln Cannon, followed by the incoming President Christopher Bradford. Thanks Lincoln for ten years of excellent leadership – open, friendly, and firm at the same time – and congratulations to Christopher!
