cyborg love... and animal conference at Brock

Science fiction unfolding before our very eyes as South Korea works on an ethical code for robots.

Of more immediate importance, Brock University is again hosting the Thinking About Animals conference, which takes place on March 15 and 16. The theme of this year's conference, sponsored by the Dept. of Sociology and Niagara Action for Animals, is "Domination, Captivity, Liberation." Vegan meals are available for attendees, although the pre-payment deadline is passed so you might be pushing your luck there. I'm desperately trying to figure out how I can make it, particularly to the keynote by Steven Best and panel with Jody Berland. If you have the chance to go, please don't pass it up.
