CHIFOO presents "Wasted Time Isn’t Time Wasted: Ensuring An Ethical Process" with Corey Pressman, Fiction!

We are at an important juncture in our technologic and social evolution requires focus and acumen and something else: poetry, imagination, and daydreaming.

This talk presents a way for us - the makers and thinkers of the science fiction present - to organize our activities so as to include healthy portions of the arts & humanities, experimentation, and daydreaming. Creating and maintaining a healthy dream/work balance will ensure that our emerging machine environments are centered on us, and not us on them.
