Beyond Cyberpunk: Me on the Plutopia Podcast #cyberpunk
I was interviewed on the Plutopia podcast a few weeks ago. The recording was posted yesterday.
On the podcast, I join hosts Jon Lebkowsky and Scoop Sweeney for a far-ranging blabberfest that touches on the importance of the Whole Earth Catalog over the course my life, how I got hooked up with Mark Frauenfelder and Boing Boing, the early days of the pioneering online community The Well, how I got involved with Mondo 2000, the infamous Billy Idol Cyberpunk album, my time at Wired, the maker movement and its association with “the street finds its own uses for things,” living in the “cyberpunk now,” and much more. We also talk about the history of cyberpunk series here on Adafruit and how that came about.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
