We've hit the big two zero! Backers - thanks for your contributions, we really appreciate it. We've got a way to go but we've got a heap of content and announcements to make over the next week, so there's all to play for.

Simon E has just posted a blog What does it Mean to be Human? on Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari and the remodelling of the self.

With Hyde we are re-imagining the story of Jekyll & Hyde with cutting edge technology and a very contemporary question of identity. Hyde will read your involuntary biological responses to the maze, as well as the actions you make to navigate it. Hyde will then adapt the maze to your progress, changing the routing and challenges within it. In this way, Hyde extends your body (like it’s a building sized exo-skeleton) but also challenges your sense of self. We ask: who are we really, if we are just semi-aware subjects of technological manipulation? Are these desires ours or are we programmed to feel them? We examine these questions within a popular cultural form, like Stephenson before us.
