Virtual Lives - A New Kind of Human or a Post-Human?

Virtual Lives - A New Kind of Human or a Post-Human?

We spend so much of our time living in a space that takes on various degrees in semblance to reality - the digital world. What do we make of this world? How is it compelling us to rethink our commonplace notion of self and identity? Ong Kar Jin, full-time tech policy analyst, and amateur internet ethnographer introduces us to different facets of virtuality. He considers how this social form of consciousness-extension is both changing and reinforcing our understanding of what makes us human.
