    Next 17 Conference: Bruce Sterling – Live from 2027

    Bruce Sterling is so much more than a sci-fi author. He is a journalist, critic and futurist. Expect insights, rage, questions and call to action from the man who is regularly featured in Wired or at SXSW. We are looking forward to his thoughts on this year’s NEXT theme ‘Digital Sucks’ and are looking forward to his predictions on the European tech business ten years from now, when today’s hot technologies are as hot as trends from back in 2007.

  4. Bruce Sterling’s closing remarks from SXSW Interactive: who isn’t in the room?

    As ever, Bruce Sterling’s closing remarks to the SXSW Interactive festival were a barn-burner; in them, Sterling rattles off a list of people who should be in the room, either because they know something that is lost on mainstream geekdom, or because they serve as examples for what not to become — from GCHQ spies to Italian net-politics ninjas, from the Dread Pirate Roberts to Barrett Brown. Sterling dips into the future ("the future is full of cities full of old people who are scared of the sky") and wonders where Silicon Valley will decamp to once California is destroyed by climate change.

    It’s 45 minutes of funny, uncomfortable, storming invective, and a bracing way to pass the Ides of March. Here’s an unauthorized MP3 rip in case you want to listen on the go (warning, may not work very well!).
