On this program we have a conversation with Kevin Kelly, co-founder, former editor, and now Senior Maverick of Wired Magazine; author of numerous books about the cultural consequences of technology; consultant on the movie Minority Report; board member of The Long Now Foundation; and former editor of The Whole Earth Review. We talk today about his most recent book, a graphic novel, The Silver Cord, which has been described as a techno-thriller, a spiritual fantasy, and a coming-of-age story and superhero myth. It explores one possibility of merging the technological and the spiritual.
