It looks like RU Sirius' podcasts went dark for a reason? Apparently, he's been working on big things: h+ magazine.
Okay, what is h+ magazine, you ask? Well, it deals with transhumanism. And if you don't know what transhumanism/extropianism is, well....hm. Hard to explain that in a soundbite, at least for me. Probably best just to send you off to the Wikipedia entry on transhumanism.
Maybe one way to sum it up, though, is this: fundies are still battling issues culturally that were settled scientifically 150 years ago (like evolution), and they are so busy fighting something that's already lost that they just have no idea what is in store for them.
So far, it looks like H+ magazine is free in PDF form, and they have plans to generate a dead-tree version soon.
