Future Follow-up

Last month’s discussion led in all sorts of directions, and a lot of further reading material was suggested. Of course I meant to get these out earlier, but there you have it…

Her Smoke Rose Up Forever, by James Tiptree, Jr (science fiction stories).

The Civilizing Process by Norbert Elias (the founding work of Figurational Sociology).

The Possibility of an Island, by Michel Houellebecq (novel about cloning).

Galatea 2.2 by Richard Powers (novel about machine learning).

The Dispossessed by Ursula Leguin (utopian science fiction).

It’s been nearly five years since the first Junta discussion. I still get nervous before every meeting, and yet it works out every time. Better than that; it’s brilliant. The reason for that is the fantastic people who show up.

We know that there are many demands on your time, and we appreciate your turning out for the Junta. Thank you.
