Big Thanks to Dan Wotherspoon
9 August 2008 (updated 16 March 2013)
Sunstone has announced that Dan Wotherspoon, executive director and editor of Sunstone magazine and symposiums, will be stepping down to pursue a new opportunity. On behalf of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, I would like to thank Dan for the many ways that he has assisted us with sharing our message in the Mormon community. He gave us our first opportunity to present parallels between Mormonism and Transhumanism at the Sunstone 2006 symposium. Subsequently, he worked with us to publish the article, “Transfiguration”, as the cover article of the March 2007 edition of the magazine, and thereafter present it on several occasions. Most recently, Dan helped us improve our marketing of the New God Argument. Dan is also a member of the Mormon Transhumanist Association.
On a personal note, I’ll add that I’ve had the opportunity to interact with Dan on many occasions, and have been repeatedly impressed by his character. He has a big heart and a sharp mind – an inspiring and inspired man. Thanks, Dan, and good luck with your new opportunity!
