And We’re back

We just passed the the 10th anniversary of The Speculist, and I think I know how I want to mark the occasion. This is too good a site to let it go fallow. I’m bringing the Speculist back. Speculist Media publishes three blogs — this one, The World Transformed, and Better All the Time. I […]

We’re Moving

After nearly ten years of blogging here at The Speculist and more than five years of podcasting under the name FastForward Radio, we will be moving both the blog and the radio show to worldtransformed.com and, going forward, The World Transformed will be the name both of this blog and our radio show. Why the change? […]

Blogging for Dollars

The class-action lawsuit being brought against the Huffington Post on behalf of unpaid bloggers demonstrates that not all organizational problems can be solved through transparency alone.

I recommend either Facebook or Google for commenting as both of these show your name. And not only is The Speculist back online, we’re (finally) fully open once again for […]

Pardon Our Dust

Okay, this is it. This weekend I’m upgrading this site as we’ve been discussing for some time. If you come by Saturday or Sunday and things look great — welcome to the new Speculist! If you come by and they look weird, come back Monday. We should be back to normal by then.

Podcast Listing

A reader reminds me that I failed to include a link to our new podcast listing on the Kurzweil site as mentioned on Wednesday’s show. Actually, the link is in the show notes, but I certainly don’t mind posting it again: http://www.kurzweilai.net/podcasts

What Next?

The Singularity Summit was an exciting two days. I had a great time meeting up with old friends and making new ones. I hope I was able to convey a little of the energy and give a glimpse of some of the amazing ideas that were covered. So now what? Well, being in that environment […]
