Speciale di io9 sul postumano

Segnalo uno speciale di io9 sul tema della postumanita'. io9 si occupa dei nostri temi da un punto di vista decisamente "pop" (e infatti la hat-tip va a Pop Transhumanism), ma questo non vuol dire che non troverete anche articoli "seri", quali quelli di James Hughes, Jamais Cascio and R.U. Sirius.
