    For this episode of the podcast, we’re talking about ‘the future’. Robert Coover leads us towards the future of storytelling: as a novelist and short story writer he’s been one of the most influential authors of the past fifty years, but he’s also been thinking about electronic literature since before there was a World Wide Web.

    We spoke to him about the possibilities of hypertext writing and the immersive virtual reality of ‘CaveWriting’. Evgeny Morozov, the author of The Net Delusion, has more than a few thoughts about the future of the internet, and it’s not all as glorious and cyber-utopian as you might hope. And Jaron Lanier wants you to change the way you behave online, and provides a guide staying human in the age of wikis and the internet Hive Mind.

    We hope you like it.
