The Idea Podcast: A Conversation with Dr Genevieve Bell, Part One.

Science Fiction is the seduction of the future without having to worry about the complications of the present

Join us in this marvelous conversation with Dr. Genevieve Bell, full-time anthropologist, and part-time futurist, as we explore ideas, technology and the futures we create.

In Part One, you can look forward to; how as a species we fear our own technological creations, how Science Fiction shapes our collective consciousness and one hell of a good duck story.

It was a privilege and a pleasure to speak with Genevieve, in fact so much of a pleasure that we had to divide our conversation into two parts so that you could enjoy it all.

You can connect with Genevieve @feraldata or check out her publications, Divining a Digital Future: Mess and Mythology in Ubiquitous Computing & “Resistance is Futile”: Reading Science Fiction Alongside Ubiquitous Computing (both co-authored with Paul Dourish).
