A World of the Insatiably Enabled

Abstract:
Dr. Alex Cavalli, of the IC2 Institute, envisions a time when all physical disabilities will be of no more consequence than myopia is today, a world in which biological and cybernetic enhancement yield the same final, improved result, no matter the recipient’s original condition: “With the advance of bio- and nanotechnology, coupled with modern convergent media, we can look forward to the possibility of having the word ‘disabled’ retired from our vocabulary. We will speak, instead, in terms of how enabled we are.”
