What does the future look like from the past? This exciting program with three people that could not better represent the intelligentsia of futurism circa 1970. This recording is from a radio program called “Sound on Film”, a series on films and the people who make them. This episode is entitled “2001–Science Fiction or Man’s Future?” Recorded May 7th, 1970. Joseph Gelman is the moderator.
At the time of this recording Arthur C. Clarke had recently collaborated on the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey with Stanley Kubrick. Alvin Toffler’s mega-influential book, Future Shock, is about to be published. And Margaret Mead is the world’s foremost cultural anthropologist.
An intriguing conversation that still has relevance today.

- Then Tableau Software removed data visualizations Wikileaks had running there.
- Then PayPal started choking off the air supply: donations.
- The U.S. Library of Congress even got into the act, shutting down access to Wikileaks at its terminals.
