Listen Now to Al, Sun, Greg and Richard on Maker Faire 2018 

Indeed, it is that time of year when Makers, small and large, men, women, and children of all ages gather to Richard Cray getting head enlargement photo by Greg Panosshare and show off their latest creations, be they glow in the dark plants, intelligent jackets or virtual worlds of play.  We think of it as a kind of people’s world’s fair, a decentralized collection of unbridled creativity, fueled by the tools and technologies rising from our amazing cauldron, otherwise known as the Bay Area.  

To cover this unbelievable collection of projects run amok, we have none other than our favorite co-conspirators of a better future, Richard Cray and Greg Panos, who spent three days at the faire, checking out the most interesting nooks and crannies, for your enjoyment and potential education.  Have fun!

Interview - Dr. Bruce Damer- Update on his Origin of Life and Consciousness Explorations

Listen Now to Dr. Bruce Damer

It’s been a few months since we’ve caught up with ‘Dr. Bruce’ and his globe-trotting adventures exploring the origins of life and consciousness.  An indy scientist, Bruce explores what most interests him in the world, which lately has been revolving around the origins of life on earth and a theory that biological life emerged from hot springs on the land, not volcanic vents under the sea. 

Dr. Bruce DamerAnd then there is the thorny question of how humanity got the way it is, with seemingly higher intelligence than the trillion other species on this planet, and an amazing ability to not simply create amazing works, but to also muck things up royally. Dr. Bruce spent some time last month at a major conference on research in consciousness and met with many fellow researchers, including Deepak Chopra, who interviewed Bruce for his daily podcast.  

Last month Dr.  Bruce returned from Pakistan and shares with us their changing perception of America and the rise of China and the new digital ‘silk road’ in the Middle East.  A good, albeit brief interview.  Enjoy!
