"HIEROGLYPH: Stories and Visions for a Better Future"

Panelists include Neal Stephenson, Annalee Newitz, Rudy Rucker, Keith Hjelmstad, and editors Ed Finn and Kathryn Cramer

Is this the new Golden Age of science fiction?  Good science fiction has the potential to act as a powerful social force as it did in the late 1930s and early 1940s.  It has the power to inspire collaboration with professionals in science and engineering and opens up space for innovation and big ideas without the constriction of data and practicality.  Join Neal Stephenson, best-selling science and speculative fiction writer and game designer, and five of today's leading thinkers, writers, and visionaries for a discussion of the intersection of world-changing art and technology.

Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future is an anthology of stories that push the limits of our recognizable reality while avoiding the classic science fiction formula, namely a dystopia or technology that has advanced far beyond any recognizable relationship to our world.  Hieroglyph aims to inspire production of new technologies to help solve the problems just beyond our current landscape.  

Panelists Neal Stephenson, Annalee Newitz, Rudy Rucker, Keith Hjelmstad, and editors Ed Finn and Kathryn Cramer will discuss Hieroglyph and exciting real-world applications of the Science Fiction genre.
