Talking Walkaway on the CNet book-club podcast

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:24:07 +0000

CNet has started a new book-club podcast, and they honored me by picking my novel Walkaway as their second-ever title. We had a long and far-ranging discussion last week about the book and the themes it raises: disasters, economics, technological immortality, community, trolling, bohemianism, and much more (MP3). Since a big part of “Walkaway” concerns... more

A Hopeful Look At The Apocalypse: interview with Innovation Hub

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 13:27:50 +0000

I’m on the latest episode of Innovation Hub (MP3): Science-fiction is a genre that imagines the future. It doesn’t necessarily predict the future (after all, where are flying cars?), but it grapples with the technological and societal changes happening today to better understand our world and where it’s heading. So, what does it mean when... more

Talking about contestable futures on the Imaginary Worlds podcast

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 13:39:07 +0000

I’m in the latest episode of Imaginary Worlds, “Imagining the Internet” (MP3), talking about the future as a contestable place that we can’t predict, but that we can influence. We were promised flying cars and we got Twitter instead. That’s the common complaint against sci-fi authors. But some writers did imagine the telecommunications that changed... more

My guest-appearance on Hello From the Magic Tavern

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:46:34 +0000

I’m a huge fan of the fantastically rude improv/current affairs/high fantasy podcast Hello From the Magic Tavern, I’ve enjoyed it ever since I binge-listened to the first season halfway through. Last month, I dropped into the Cards Against Humanity studios where the podcast is recorded while in Chicago on my book tour, where I sat... more

In the latest episode of Reply All, a fantastic tech podcast, the hosts and producers discuss the situation with DRM, the future of the web, and the W3C — a piece I’ve been working on them with for a year now. The issue is a complicated and eye-glazingly technical one, and they do a genuinely... more

Free audiobook of Car Wars, my self-driving car/crypto back-door apocalypse story

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 17:18:32 +0000

Last month, Melbourne’s Deakin University published Car Wars, a short story I wrote to inspire thinking and discussion about the engineering ethics questions in self-driving car design, moving beyond the trite and largely irrelevant trolley problem. Shortly after, I went into Skyboat Media’s studio and recorded an audio edition of the story, which the Deakin... more

How free software stayed free

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 17:19:29 +0000

I did an interview with the Changelog podcast (MP3) about my upcoming talk at the O’Reilly Open Source conference in London, explaining how it is that the free and open web became so closed and unfree, but free and open software stayed so very free, and came to dominate the software landscape. “Desperate” is often... more

On this just-released episode of the O’Reilly Radar podcast (MP3), I talk about EFF’s lawsuit against the US government to invalidate Section 1201 of the DMCA, which will make it legal to break DRM in order to fix security vulnerabilities in the Internet of Things devices that, today, are almost invariable insecure, and are also... more
