Happy Cyborg Month!

September 13, 2010

The latest and greatest from Slashdot:

“In May 1960, Manfred E. Clynes and Nathan S. Kline presented a paper called ‘Drugs, Space, and Cybernetics.’ The proceedings of the symposium were published in 1961, but, before that, an excerpt of Clynes & Kline’s paper appeared in the September issue of Astronautics magazine (issue 13), entitled Cyborgs and Space [PDF]. Aside from a mention in the New York Times, that’s is the first time the word appears in print. This month is the 50th anniversary of that article.

Ah, cyborgs.  Such a rich topic.  With 50 Posts About Cyborgs and Kevin Kelly‘s essay on how we’ve been cyborgs all along this is going to be a great month.
