show #229

karl schroeder is a veteran novelist and futurist. for some reason he has been off Drax’ radar but this has now changedas mrs. drax urged him to get karl’s latest “stealing worlds” via cory doctorow’s recommendation. the book is a ultra-dense exploration of a future in which vr, ar, ai, iot and blockchain dominate economy, society, nature and world politics: a near-future vision that is all too realistic yet not cynical but rather hopeful while not prescribing a naive solution to complex problems. enjoy a thought-provoking conversation with a man who david brin [in a email to drax] calls “one of the most interesting dudes on the planet!”:

and now read on below for more interesting thoughts on the subject of this week’s show:

  • the original livestream from sansar
  • karl loves sansar [apparently just as much as his faux tommy bahamas shirt made by fabeeo breen]

  • highlight clips from the show: game inventories … oh man … the BIGGEST of issues and karl nails it!

  • karl on his “rewilding” concept
  • big big thx to fellow author peter watts [author of “blindsight“], who helped onboard karl & supply vr access. drax is getting his teeth into peter’s oeuvre so expect an appearance in sansar soon!

  • what is new in sansar? more tutorials from yours truly …
  • what is happening in sl you ask? well apparently a blogger network?

the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley] is a weekly production of basicdrax entertainment.
