The Joe Show

Thanks to Joe Teehan for having me on “The Joe Show” to talk about the future union of humans and computers, and about Upload.  You can catch the interview on the KGMI-AM website (see “The Joe Show for 4/22/13“) or listen to the MP3 here, trimmed down to just my segment.

In doing these radio interviews, I find myself gradually fleshing out my ability to talk about ideas and concerns that flopped around in my head through the many years of writing Upload.  I finally touched on one issue in particular that’s important to me, which could be in its early stages already:

We as a species have a role as caretakers of the planet, and as we isolate ourselves from the planet through a layer of virtual existence, we lose touch with that.  We could become more prone than ever to abusing the world that made it all possible.
