bOING bOING was a zine that my wife Carla and I launched in 1988 to
cover comic books, cyberpunk science fiction, consciousness
technology, curious phenomena, and whatever else surprised and
delighted us. That zine, which ran for 15 issues until 1997, evolved
into the very website you're reading right now.
We've made available a free anthology of some of our favorite
interviews from bOING bOING, the zine. You can access
it for free with Microsoft's Office Web Apps on SkyDrive, whose
sponsorship has made this project possible.
The anthology, called bOING
bOING: History of the Future! is a collection of interviews with
and articles by some of our favorite writers and thinkers - Robert
Anton Wilson, Rudy Rucker, William Gibson, Kevin Kelly, Marc Laidlaw,
and Bruce Sterling.
For the last several weeks, we've been running posts about the articles
included in the bOING bOING: History of the Future anthology. Last
week, I wrote about bOING bOING's interview with Bruce Sterling.
This week, I'd like to introduce the interview that my wife Carla and I conducted with writer and Wired co-founder Keven Kelly. It appeared in bOING bOING #13 (64 pages) and was published in 1994 in San Francisco. (Pesco wrote the cover story on Dark Wave and the resurgence of goth!) We asked Kevin about his book on chaos, machine evolution, and emergent behavior, called Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, & the Economic World.
The document is in Microsoft Word format and you can view it for free
with Office Web Apps on SkyDrive whether you have Word on your
computer or not. And if you'd like to download it for local perusal or
printing and don't have a recent version of Microsoft Word or one of
the many other applications that can open the document, you can use
the free Word
Viewer for Windows or Quick Look built into Mac OS X.
