    Episode 171 :: Moogfest Bound with YACHT & Omni’s Claire Evans

    Posted by NerdyShow on March 25, 2014

    Sci-tech, sci-fi, and synths collide as our Moogfest interview series continues!

    Moogfest is a festival focused around electronic music with symposiums on futurism, art, and technology (April 23rd-27th, in Asheville, NC) and leading up to it, Nerdy Show is speaking with some of the incredible talent that’s been culled for this year’s event. In this episode, Cap and Jon talk with renaissance woman, Claire Evans – performer in the band YACHT, and Editor At-Large of Omni Reboot, the digital reincarnation of the legendary science and science fiction magazine, Omni.

    She’s not only performing at Moogfest, she’s putting on a panel called “Xenomusic: Science Fiction and the Synthesized Sound” where artists, musicians, and scientists will muse on what music will sound like in the future and what it might sound like on other worlds.  Join us as we tiptoe the thin line between possible futures and the future present, discuss bringing Omni back from the dead, Philip K. Dick, what’s new with YACHT, growing up with computers, genetically engineering bacteria, and a slew of sciency subjects.

  8. You Are Not So Smart 020 – James Burke and Matt Novak ponder the future and why we are terrible at predicting it

    If you love educational entertainment – programs about science, nature, history, technology and everything in between – it is a safe bet that the creators of those shows were heavily influenced by the founding fathers of science communication: Carl Sagan, David Attenborough, and James Burke.

    In this episode of the You Are Not So Smart Podcast we sit down with James Burke and discuss the past, the present, and where he sees us heading in the future. Burke says we must soon learn how to deal with a world in which scarcity is scarce, abundance is abundant, and home manufacturing can produce just about anything you desire.

    James Burke is a legendary science historian who created the landmark BBC series Connections which provided an alternative view of history and change by replacing the traditional “Great Man” timeline with an interconnected web in which all people influence one another to blindly direct the flow of progress. Burke is currently writing a new book about the coming age of abundance, and he continues to work on his Knowledge Web project.

    We also sit down with Matt Novak, creator and curator of Paleofuture, a blog that explores retro futurism, sifting through the many ways people in the past predicted how the future would turn out, sometimes correctly, mostly not.

    Together, Burke and Novak help us understand why we are to terrible at predicting the future and what we can learn about how history truly unfolds so we can better imagine who we will be in the decades to come.

    After the interview, I discuss a news story about how cigarettes affect the way your brain interprets cigarette advertising.

    In every episode, before I read a bit of self delusion news, I taste a cookie baked from a recipe sent in by a listener/reader. That listener/reader wins a signed copy of my new book, “You Are Now Less Dumb,” and I post the recipe on the YANSS Pinterest page. This episode’s winner is Patrick Regan who submitted a recipe for orange slice cookies. Send your own recipes to david {at} youarenotsosmart.com.

    Stephen Heppell is a Professor of New Media Environments at the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice at Bournemouth University.

    Heppell is dishevelled, funny and quite an inspiring teacher. He’s hugely optimistic about the capacity of kids to be challenged, to both absorb and understand complex issues in this period of accelerated technological change.

    In his work he draws upon a unique $450m portfolio of large scale, effective research projects, spanning over thirty years. They range from the design of schools through to addressing the educational needs of elite Olympic coaches. In 2009 Heppell was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award from British Education and Technology Training.

    This address was filmed at the 2013 Creative Innovations conference in Melbourne.
