Lady Gaga, Nick Bostrom, and the Future of Humanity

Lady Gaga – Born This Way (Audio) currently has 2,832,550 “listens” on YouTube since being posted yesterday. It’s reminiscent of Madonna’s Vogue from 1990 (watch video).

Just wait until Lady Gaga’s video for Born This Way is released…


Until then, let’s watch this lecture by Oxford University professor Nick Bostrom, part of the Hard Problems in Social Science symposium.


The Future of Humanity, in New Waves in Philosophy of Technology, eds. Jan-Kyrre Berg Olsen, Evan Selinger, & Soren Riis (New York: Palgrave McMillan, 2009) [pdf]

But more importantly, what will Lady Gaga wear to the Grammys tomorrow? Such suspense!
