Interval at the Long Now: Salon Talk

  • Interval 2 Marina Boulevard San Francisco, CA, 94123 United States (map)

I'll be doing a talk called "Science Needs Fiction" as part of the Long Now Foundation's Interval Salon Talks series. 

Science fiction does more than predict future inventions. Stories are a testbed for exploring the unexpected ways people could incorporate technology into their cultures. From my dual perspectives as a science journalist and fiction writer, I'll will discuss how scientists, innovators, and the rest of us benefit from the crucible of imaginative fictions. 

Tickets are available at the Interval. These shows usually sell out, so get your tickets early!
