Hangout With NG Channel “Brain Games” Host Jason Silva

Filmmaker, techno-philosopher, and self-proclaimed “wonder junkie” Jason Silva is described by The Atlantic as a “Timothy Leary for the viral video age”. His online videos explore media art, inspiration, science, technology, and imagination, and have been viewed more than 2 million times. He has spoken at TEDGlobal and done speeches for IBM, Microsoft, Intel, and Google. He is also, of course, the host of “Brain Games” on the National Geographic Channel.

With a million mind-bending ideas a minute coming at you in his videos, you may have thought it would be nice if you could just stop him for a second and find out what exactly he’s talking about.

Well now you can.

Be part of the conversation and join our LIVE Google+ Hangout on Air as we explore how technology is allowing us to extend and augment the human brain, and the fantastic new forms of exploration this is opening up.

Send in your questions for the explorers and they may be asked on air. You may even be invited to join the Hangout and ask your questions live. Submit your questions by…

    What role does religion play in the upcoming age of singularity? Is it diminished by the fact that we surpass human intellect? #letsexplore @JasonSilva

  • Larry

    Question: Are we going to sufficiently screw up the world’s climate before it is too late to remedy the situation or will mankind stop polluting our environment and forego the financial rewards?
