upload: /uhp'lohd/ v. 1. [techspeak] To transfer programs or
   data over a digital communications link from a smaller or
   peripheral `client' system to a larger or central `host'
   one.  A transfer in the other direction is, of course, called a
   download (but see the note about ground-to-space comm under
   that entry).  2. [speculatively] To move the essential patterns and
   algorithms that make up one's mind from one's brain into a
   computer.  Those who are convinced that such patterns and
   algorithms capture the complete essence of the self view this
   prospect with pleasant anticipation.
