Hippies Saving Physics, Swarmbots,SmelloVision, Feedback Loops and Co-creating more profoundly.Frankie Slater on Circles United

Listen Now Dr. Future Show 6.21.11

In our news hour the just published book “How the Hippies Saved Physics” is discussed, as are the new swarmbots, odiferous media, feedback loop controls, Google’s new voice and image search functions, and just what media will survive any apocolypse?

Our guest in the second hour is Frankie Lee Slater, a communicator and networker, on a global “circles uniting” tour, bringing together disparate circles of humanity who might not otherwise know each other. She makes the case that there is still a place for really meeting people in the flesh, as opposed to simply online relationships. It is part of her mission to improve the quality of relationships between circles of influence, and she gives us some insight into how this is done and how we may create more effectively.

And the Harmony Festival is happening this weekend in Santa Rosa, a Bay Area favorite, featuring many new and exciting exhibits and demos of alternative energy, eco village tech, cool music, and a place to simply be with your friends and family.  We get the download (and a riddle for two free tickets) from Shawn Ahern, director of the festival.
