reboot 9.0 Theoretical Man (Slides)

Just the slides for now. I will write a few words about the sessions around Theoretical Man during the next few days. Reboot was fantastic and not like last year’s or any other conference. I am holding on to the bootstraps while in Copenhagen for the next few days.


I am pushing the envelope on Theoretical Man and have also just proposed a conversation titled Quantum Humanism. This has gotten me way out of my comfort zone. It would have been much more comfortable to wait for the e-mail answers to the two individual communications that I sent to both Adam and Oleg. But no, I read Thomas emails and decided that I could venture this conversation into existence, and then see what emerges from that.

Why this, why now? I really am curious. I have lots of questions, and there are lots of people who know quite a bit more. I also know a few things, have a few ideas, but I want to be able to ask the questions, think out loud, try things out. This is not about looking good, this is about doing some thinking in public space.


I have been listening to Nicole Simon‘s pre- Reboot 9.0 interviews after she interviewed me on Friday. I tend to not listen to podcasts much as they are too time consuming and slow for my internal and arbitrary standard for information consumption, however these have caught my attention. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that the site this year is really alive and permeable. That is, conversation is happening, contact is being made, and that all before we gather in Copenhagen next week.

It was fun to listen to my interview and Nicole’s input. Give it a try, but do listen to the other interviews, they are not to be missed.

I have spent most of the day putting together the 20 slides for the micro presentation. The micro presentation of Theoretical Man will have a totally different format from the main presentation. The slides will contains some images that have never been shown in public before.
