If you’re in NYC or DC this fall and you like SF like I like acronyms, we might run into each other. September 30, I’ll be in conversation with Elizabeth Bear and Ed Finn at Tumblr HQ in Manhattan about The Hieroglyph Anthology. Project Hieroglyph, inspired by Neal Stephenson and headquartered at Arizona State University’s […]
So, this is a conversation between Ramez Naam and I about our respective books. Weirdly we were both on the same coast when this interview happened, but still had to do the interview over email because of flight schedules. It turned out pretty well, though, because when we hung out at the annual World Future […]
I spent most of last week in San Jose with a new client, and as such forgot to post my LonCon (which I have taken to calling Long Con, given the price of airline tickets and hotel accomodation) schedule. Here it is. It’s a pretty cool schedule. And after it’s done, we plan to hit […]

All credit goes to the amazingly talented Erik Mohr, who normally works for ChiZine Publications but went to the dark side for me and Angry Robot Books. I’ve wanted an Erik […]
This year has already been pretty busy, in terms of my foresight work. In January, I ran a workshop at a Day Zero event for Engineers Without Borders Canada AGM.
