Generation Byte was founded on the 8th of September 2018 by Loui Coleman, the founder, author and full owner. This blog is about the effects of uploading your brain to digital form, including the societal change, industrial shifts, creation and decline, and the technology that would be required to make such things like mind-upload possible. We highly recommend you read the ‘important posts’ before any other posts, as these are essential to the core idea of what we talk about.
We also talk about Netflix’s Black Mirror and, in the future, other media with technology related to mind upload technology and transhumanism in general. This does mean that some episodes without any relevant technology are not reviewed.
The goal behind Generation Byte is to increase awareness about mind-uploading and similar technologies. We also want to provoke discussions about the ramifications of the technology, such as the immense technological struggle and potential for legal and societal catastrophe. We ultimately want to inspire scientists and engineers to develop the mind-uploading technology to provide a secular immortality, and we want to awaken the international and regional governments of the potential danger they face with ignorance and force them into taking preemptive regulatory action.
