Extreme Futurist Festival 2011 aims to unite the most radical thinkers around the globe in the fields of science, medicine, transhumanism, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, hacking, philosophy, and the arts. XFF 2011 will be like no other festival. Picture an event where the bridge between the counterculture and academia is finally crossed. From live tech demonstrations to futuristic presentations to provocative performance art to live music we will take you off the grid as we explore a new kaleidoscopic wonderland. If the original Burning Man was to meet the Singularity Summit, you would have Extreme Futurist Fest 2011. The dance for the realization of the future begins in the corridors of art, literature, and culture. Only by connecting together the greatest visionary minds with the most innovative and rule-breaking forms of artistic expression and cultural mind-melding can we unlock the full potential of the Future and bring it into the Present. We offer you the bold new interdisciplinary movement of the 21st Century. A place where the right brain and left brain merge into a new "Undivided Mind". The future is all around us today. The explosion of the Internet and powerful mobile devices have transformed life in fundamental ways for billions of people. We need to increase our efforts to open source technology so that it becomes available to the billions who lack it. We must push the envelope of the latest p2p technology to enable new applications which bring us closer together as a society. We want a future-friendly culture that embraces technology and understands that technological innovation plays a central role in solving the world's most persistent problems. We encourage a new generation of thinkers who understand that fun and learning are not mutually exclusive and that the most complex topics can be grasped if there is enough curiosity, wonder, and enthusiasm for learning. Labs, companies, and startups around the world are making startling steps forward in the fields of nanotechnology, robotics, brain-computer interfacing, 3D printing, materials science, wearable computing, life extension, social networking, and more. We must understand these advances so that we can ensure that they benefit as many people as possible. Join us for a profound exploration of what it means to be human. A first-hand look into the genesis of a powerful new intellectual and expressive culture. For more information on the Extreme Futurist Festival, please visit: http://extremefuturistfest.com/
