(Actually not The End!!!)
All in all, this lecture made me truly excited for the future of communication and connectivity between people and the Earth. Most of the time when we think of real genuine connections we make with others and the Earth we don’t think about technology, in fact we think of getting away from technology or taking technology out of the equation altogether. “Getting back to our roots” so to speak. But what Riba and Harbisson have done is show us a way to stay together by redefining our relationships to our bodies and the world. And that’s neat!!!

**Riba actually considers herself a “Phantom Cyborg”, due to the fact that she no longer has that implant in her foot but she still thinks of it like a phantom limb.
