Welcome to the official homepage and personal website of Kyle Kurpinski, author of How To Defeat Your Own Clone: And Other Tips for Surviving the Biotech Revolution. For those who don't yet have a copy of the book, head on over to Scribd for a sneak peak of the first chapter. I also contribute to Broken Secrets: an award-winning blog dedicated to "things you probably don't know but might find entertaining or useful." Check it out. You might just learn something new (and take a look at my archived articles here).
Read Science! Biotech Revolution Edition (July 10, 2013)
Joanne Manaster and Jeff Shaumeyer have teamed up to create a new webcast series called "Read Science!." Terry and I joined as guests on this recent edition, along with Emily Anthes (author of Frankenstein's Cat), to discuss our books and the Biotech Revolution. Full video is below.
Chat with me at the California Academy of Sciences (January 22, 2013)
As part of the "Brilliant!Science" series at the California Academy of Sciences, Terry and I will be giving a lecture on the history and future of bioengineering. Join us on either Saturday or Sunday (Jan 26 and 27) to "Chat with a Scientist" and learn something new. We'll also be giving EKG demos, so you'll have a chance to see if your heart is beating (fingers crossed!).
Update (April 11, 2013): the video from our presentation is up and streaming on Ustream.
Bioengineering: the ultimate conversation starter? (November 14, 2012)
Tonight I'll be giving a talk about the science of rebuilding and enhancing humans. Oh, and did I mention there will be beer? It's Nerd Nite SF #30, featuring lock-picking, organ transplantation, and an overview of the past, present, and future of building humans better.
If you've never been to Nerd Nite, you're missing out. Check 'em out on the 3rd Wednesday of each month for healthy dose of science and booze.
