Sorry, no interview this week. Just couldn’t pull it together in time. I do have stuff planned for the rest of the month, though.
So instead I’d like to take a moment and ask who you’d like to see interviews with. If you’ve been reading the past couple months, you’ll know that I’m focusing on somewhat lesser-known individuals. I’d like to talk to some bigger names at some point, especially people who aren’t overexposed, but I’d really like to focus on people who haven’t had their spot in the limelight yet.

Ken Goldberg! I’d love to hear what he is up to nowadays. He was the editor of “Robot in the Garden” (Telerobotics and Telepistemology in the Age of the Internet) ISBN 0-262-0720303. His Net art installations include: Memento Mori, Dislocation of Intimacy, Telegarden, Ouija 2000.
Have a nice weekend 🙂

You could try to get someone from BB or Metzger and ask them what it was like when they started their media projects, and how they were seen as closely aligned with the occulture at their beginnings, while currently that takes a back seat to novelty at large.
Obviously people already in the limelight, but I think it would be a good one for you.
Could also interview Arun. 🙂

Pencil and paper rpg designers Luke Crane and Jared Sorensen have just released a game that owes more than a lot to the work of Cory Doctorow. I’ve been playing games for years and this one is more radical than anything I’ve seen before it. Also, I’m a geek and I would love to hear what these guys have to say. Link: http://projectdonut.com/

Juliet – Thanks for the recommendation! I checked out his site and he looks interesting.
Dad – I think Ayers is pretty out of my league.
Danny – I’ve been reading the Boing Boing blog for almost 10 years, and I have a few back issues of the old magazine and I think now’s probably actually the most occulty BB has ever been. That said, David Pescovitz (who’s responsible for most of the occult content on BB) would be a pretty good interview subject.
And Arun’s a great idea – I wanted to interview him for Technoccult TV.
Jesse – I’ll check that out as well. Pen and paper RPG designers would probably make good interview subjects.

Totally. We’d love to do this, esp. with FreeMarket’s release only a couple of months away!
See above. Shoot me an email!
