The New Emergency

I promised the guys in Feasta that I would give their forthcoming conference a plug. Check out the details here.

The speaker line up includes two of my favourites: Richard Douthwaite - consistently one of the most original thinkers in the country - and Dmitry Orlov. Dmitry is a leading exponent of what has been jokingly called 'pessimism porn': you can get a sense of his style from his recent talk at The Long Now Foundation. Scary and funny (in a Russian black humour sort of way).

I'll be going along myself - hopefully see you there.

  2. Really? You never struck me as a Feasta-head. Richard has some good stuff alright, interesting.
