  1. Is there a reason this podcast cannot be downloaded? I like to listen to podcasts on my mp3 player.

  2. Look for an upcoming interview with Randal Koene in H+ Magazine on the subjects of WBE and computational challenges for mind uploading. See also: http://hplusmagazine.com/2013/04/09/an-advance-in-mesoscale-graph-theory-with-implications-for-whole-brain-emulation/
