In which I have a chat with Intel’s futurist, Brian David Johnson, in front of a Russian space capsule at the Chabot Space & Science Center. The shoot was for Intel’s Tomorrow Project:

“The Tomorrow Project explores our possible futures through fact-based, science-based fiction and video conversations with scientists and science fiction authors, legends and world renowned experts, passionate advocates and everyday people. Science fiction gives all of us all a language so that we can have a conversation about the future and these conversations make dramatic changes.”

I have been thinking for a while about how the act of hacking embarks on the same exploration of not-yet-defined futures that science fiction often does. Just look at the types of hacks that have emerged from Science Hack Days. In a couple of weeks, I’ll be presenting a new talk at dConstruct that hopefully wanders through some of my recent thoughts in this area.

Part 1: Breaking Down Barriers

Part 2: Hacking For Good

Part 3: Non-Binary For The People
