The following comes to me and to you from foward-thinking friends Coco Conn and R. U. Sirius. Coco passed on the announcement and Ken did the magazine. It’s the second issue of h+ Magazine, and, well, I’ll let him tell you about it:
From R. U. Sirius:
Has the future been canceled?
Rising up out of the gloom of early 2009, the second edition of h+ magazine sends a message of hope to weary changesurfers.
With articles like:
- “Space Solar: Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun ” by Howard Bloom
- “The Global Financial Crisis: A Hiccup on the Path to Superintelligent Financial Markets?” by Ben Goertzel
- “Singularity 101 with Vernor Vinge”
- “First Steps Toward Post Scarcity or Why It’s the End of the World as We Know it and You Should Feel Fine” by Jason Stoddard.
h+ #2 takes on the mess in front of us and then catapults us further on and further out.
And for those of you who prefer your futurism gritty, we have John Shirley on Cyberpunk for the 21st Century and Paul McEnery talking to “BioGunk” SF writer Peter Watts.
In my humble opinion, this is the most fully realized edition of a periodical that I have been involved in since the glory days of Mondo 2000 in the early ’90s. Really, when’s the last time you saw a magazine that deserves to be read front to back? Seriously, check it out.
And that’s not all. For those of you — like me — who love the feel of a good old-fashioned print magazine in your hands, we are printing a limited number that will be available on some magazine stands and directly through us.
So let the word go forth, h+ issue #2 is calling the future into the present. And please, spread the word.
