Interview on Meme Therapy

Last week saw an interview with me by Hugo and John W. Campbell Award-nominated author John Scalzi. This week, there’s a short interview with me up on the Meme Therapy blog.

My favorite quote:

But there’s something about [Natch, the protagonist of Infoquake]’s drive and his selfishness that you simply can’t ignore. It’s just part of the human condition. The same daring, unconventional mindset that gives us people like Einstein and Gandhi and Joan of Arc also produces people like Hitler and Attila the Hun and Osama bin Laden. They’re two sides of the same coin.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out Meme Therapy, I highly recommend it. Instead of prattling on themselves about the Big Ideas affecting our world and our future, the three Meme Therapists recruit real big-name SF authors and scientific experts to do it for them. Just this week, they’ve gotten to pick the brains of Robert Charles Wilson, John Shirley, Chris Roberson, Lou Anders, John Joseph Adams, A.R. Yngve, and Joel Shepherd, among others.
