This week’s Team Human comes to you recorded live at the historic Grand Theater in San Francisco’s Mission District, home to Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. We’ll be sharing four installments of this live event, kicking it off with a conversation with Annalee Newitz, author of the mind blowing sci-fi novel Autonomous, as well as prior work Scatter Adapt and Remember: How Humans will Survive a Mass Extinction, founder of I09, and journalist for outlets such as Ars Technica among many others.
Annalee joins Douglas on stage to talk about artificial intelligence, autonomy, tech ethics, robot sex, saving the planet and more. It’s a lively discussion, energized by the presence of a wonderful and welcoming audience.
Rushkoff kicks off this live series with an excerpt from his Team Human Manifesto, an excellent primer on the motivation driving this podcast and the connections being forged through its members.
Next week we’ll pick up with part two of this live show, featuring cyberculture pioneer, educator, and artist Howard Rheingold.
