Which speakers or talks at the me Convention are you most inspired about?
I’m really excited about seeing Buzz Aldrin as his work is very relevant to what Moon Ribas, the co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation, and I are doing. The origin of the word cyborg comes from space exploration: for surviving in space, we have to change our bodies and design ourselves in a new way. Buzz Aldrin was the first person to put seismographic sensors on the moon to examine the moon’s activities, like moon quakes.
My friend Moon is already having a sensor
in her body to feel earthquakes, but by September, she will be having another implant in her body to feel moon quakes as well. So, whenever there’s a moon quake, her feet will start vibrating. So, the connection between us and Buzz Aldrin is pretty strong: he was the first man on the moon, and Moon Ribas will be the first woman to have the moon down at her feet.
