Massive Change Interviews Stewart Brand
Via cityofsound comes a link to a great interview with Stewart Brand by the folks at Massive Change.
Stewart Brand is the President of the Long Now Foundation, co-founder of the All Species Inventory and the Long Bets Foundation, works quarter-time with the Global Business Network, and serves as a trustee with the Santa Fe Institute. He speaks in this interview about the Whole Earth Catalog, happily discovers he's a "biomimic" and contemplates aloud the future of war. Brand's books include The Media Lab: Inventing the Future at MIT and How Buildings Learn: What Happens After They're Built. Join his current project: help social entrepreneur George Soros get nominated for a Nobel Prize! Tune in for details.
Stewart talks about a great many topics, but perhaps the most startling is that a national security report he worked on with the Depart of Defense, which was given to President Bush, specifically discusses the World Trade Center as a potential target of Al Qaeda.
