In a 2014 Buzzfeed article that went viral, Drew Philp describes a serviceman’s reaction to reconnecting power to his long abandoned house in Detroit, "You’re either brave as hell or crazy as a loon." The full story, recently released as a book entitled A $500 House in Detroit, Rebuilding an Abandoned Home in an American City, is a modern coming of age novel connecting his personal journey renovating an abandoned structure to the troubled racial history of Detroit—and ultimately America. As a young man, with high hopes to fix the city for the better, Philp instead discovers himself through the community that changes him for the better. Philp writes poignantly and passionately about community, race, sustainability, craftsmanship, history, and his dog Gratiot.
As part of his book tour, Philp sat down with Googler Matt Mergener to discuss Detroit, a city he describes as "like America with the volume turned all the way up." Philp expands on the personal experiences of the book, connecting them concretely to the city’s past, present, and future.

Ruth Whippman discusses her new book, America the Anxious: How Our Pursuit of Happiness is Creating a Nation of Nervous Wrecks. When Whippman, a British journalist, moved to California, she found that the most common obsession amongst the people she met was finding happiness. But it seems as though all the yoga, mindfulness, and self-help seminars are actually making us less happy, not more.

Sophia Cope talks about the EFF and ACLU challenge against the government’s warrantless searches of cell phones and other devices at the border.
2017 has been a watershed year of shifting realities and the oppression of human consciousness by Archons. We deconstruct this year from a Magical and Gnostic perspective, exposing the machinations of the rulers of this age in politics, science and culture. What really is transpiring in our elite-engineered society on both metaphysical and material levels? What’s more, we predict what might happen in the apocalyptical 2018, providing the Gnosis for surviving the endgame of the Demiurge and his slaves in the establishment. And yes, we cover what cool movies and books came out.

We’re living in yesterday’s future, and it’s nothing like the speculations of our authors and film/TV producers. As a working science fiction novelist, I take a professional interest in how we get predictions about the future wrong, and why, so that I can avoid repeating the same mistakes. Science fiction is written by people embedded within a society with expectations and political assumptions that bias us towards looking at the shiny surface of new technologies rather than asking how human beings will use them, and to taking narratives of progress at face value rather than asking what hidden agenda they serve.
In this talk, author Charles Stross will give a rambling, discursive, and angry tour of what went wrong with the 21st century, why we didn’t see it coming, where we can expect it to go next, and a few suggestions for what to do about it if we don’t like it.
