Jaron Lanier

Here is a video of a talk Jaron Lanier gave at a conference on Augmented Reality recently. I read his book "You Are Not A Gadget" recently and I'm curious about some of his ideas. He is one of those thinkers that I'm very interested in keeping up on what they have to say (including Bruce Sterling, Clay Shirky, Amber Case and Tim O'Reilly )



He mentions a short story by E.M. Forster (1909) in his talk called "The Machine Stops" that sounds like it would be a worth while read for all of us at some point.

He also mentions an man name Ted Nelson that was one of the early thinkers on technology. I must go learn more about him
