  4. Admiral Shovel and the Toilet Roll

    It begins to look as if we might have been wrong. All those predictions driving us forward throughout history have brought us finally to the unexpected realisation that the future is, suddenly, no longer what it used to be. Oops.

    James Burke is a living legend. Or, as he put it, “No-one under the age of fifty has heard of me and everyone over the age of fifty thinks I’m dead.”

    He is a science historian, an author, and a television presenter. But calling James Burke a television presenter is like calling Mozart a busker. His 1978 series Connections and his 1985 series The Day The Universe Changed remain unparalleled pieces of television brilliance covering the history of science and technology.

    Before making those astounding shows, he worked on Tomorrow’s World and went on to become the BBC’s chief reporter on the Apollo Moon missions.

    His books include The Pinball Effect, The Knowledge Web, Twin Tracks and Circles.

  5. FutureEverything 2015: Warren Ellis - Some Bleak Circus

    Closing the 2015 FutureEverything conference, we welcome esteemed writer and sociocultural commentator Warren Ellis. ‘Some Bleak Circus’ is a light entertainment about psychedelic nightmares, the grim tide of time, our weird present moment and our future doom. Gathering up the four themes of the festival and ruining them. Because you have had fun at FutureEverything, and now it is time for the fun to stop. As a writer concerned with exploring the unknown, Warren Ellis has written and been invited to speak on subjects such as inventing the future, our possible transhumanist landscape, and where the cultural history of ritual applies to our current understandings of technology. Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of graphic novels like Transmetropolitan, Fell, Ministry of Space and Planetary, and the author of the NYT-bestselling Gun Machine and the “underground classic” novel Crooked Little Vein. He’s also written extensively for Vice, WIRED UK and Reuters on technological and cultural matters. His newest publication is the digital short-story single Dead Pig Collector, from FSG Originals. His next book will be the novella Normal, also from FSG. A documentary about his work, Captured Ghosts, was released in 2012.
