Sarah May Scott is not a cyborg

If you missed yesterday’s interview with Sarah May Scott, it’s a must-read. As the result of a terrible injury, she is a heavily tech-augmented person:

I am not a cyborg, but I am getting closer and closer to being a terminator. My back is already full of titanium, and I’ve got a radio-controlled device in my abdomen that feeds medication into my spinal canal. If the trials go well, I hope to get my chance at being the female Hardiman with the ReWalk system. You can start calling me Ripley when that happens.

Sarah’s blog, Tumblr, Flickr, Twitter, Etsy, and service dog training blog.

    I just wanna say, that we are all cyborgs. We all have augmented abilities from whence we are born(shots to make us immune to disease). So, if that mean we are cyborg, then i’m also assuming one could call her a cyborg as well… Guess that’s just how i see it.
