Last Monday I was interviewed by representatives from the BBC for a documentary set to air sometime in the future.
I'm not exactly sure when it airs, and I'm not sure that they are either, but I think the earliest will be September of this year. The subject of the documentary is "The Future", and it sounds as if it is going to be a very intriguing piece. Somewhere around 40 people were interviewed on all kinds of fascinating topics, from robotics to nanotechnology to life extension. I don't know if I managed to do any kind of justice to the sorts of topics covered, and there were so many things I wished I'd said afterward (and some things I know I worded quite clumsily), but it was really neat to be able to take part in such a cool project.
I'm not sure what sort of tone the documentary is going to take, but at least for my part I tried to emphasize not "technophilia" but a rational approach to emerging tech that involves a concurrent social evolution (e.g., so that technologies can be developed for uses that help people, but that people are not compelled to use these technologies in ways that promote bigotry or injustice).
