A View from Stephen Cass

Follow Tech Review's Interview with Neal Stephenson Live on Twitter

Editor-in-chief Jason Pontin will be interviewing the science fiction legend at 4pm Eastern.

  • April 17, 2012

Today at MIT, Neal Stephenson will be questioned about his inspirations, plans, and thoughts on the state of science fiction and real technology in front of an audience of 450 people, who will also get a chance to pose questions of their own. 

Stephenson is the author of a string of bestsellers, including Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, Anathem, and his latest book, Reamde.

Those who can’t attend in person can still follow along on twitter. You can follow our official event twitterer @sooz, or just look for the #TRSF hashtag. We’ll post a followup blog tomorrow with some of the highlights. The interview will also be transcribed and edited for the 2012 issue of our annual science fiction anthology, the TRSF. The last issue is still available in print and electronic formats.
