Note that Roy Christopher has recently authored a must-have collection of his interviews, Follow for Now — order from roychristopher.com or frontwheeldrive.com This is possibly the most “cutting edge” grouping of folks on the intersection of futurism/technology/art yet seen. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough! Check out pages 120-121, 242, 265 as an example…
Many thanks due, and be sure to check out my comments on Vale’s recent book, Pranks 2.
The following blurb appeared on Erik Davis’ blog yesterday (Thanks, Erik!):
“Roy Christopher is the supersharp, humble, and very friendly guy who runs the website frontwheeldrive.com, which has long been one of my favorite spots online to feel the technoculture’s intellectual pulse — which in Christopher’s case is primarily sensed through dialogue.

The heart of frontwheeldrive is scores and scores of on-target, and generally succinct interviews — usually conducted by Roy, but also by folks like Mark Dery and Paul Miller.
