Re: <nettime> [Networkedlabour] tensions within the bay area elites

Thanks for the reply Michel, meanwhile I found a relevant post at p2pf blog that gives a good overview, which allows me to see your point: http://blog.p2pfoundation.net/a-progressive-interpretation-of-transhumanist-politics/2009/02/13
I would suggest others to read it. the author suggests that reactionary  transhumanism gained a wider reach then one would expect, while the progressive version had difficulty to articulate itself. It is very informative indeed. Thinking of passing it Justine Tunney of Occupy Solidarity Network with Micah White, who seems to be under the heavy influence of neoreactionary transhumanism as Kevin pointed out. Ideas are strong and seems like making a negative impact on some social forces and can be manipulative on a larger scale then we could guess, especially after the far right entry to the European Parliament, to give this debate wider public visibility is of an high importance I believe.
