Video from the Stross and Doctorow show at MakerBot in Brooklyn

Joly MacFie captured video of Charlie Stross's and my tour-stop at Brooklyn's MakerBot this week. We were there in support of our new novel Rapture of the Nerds, and did a talk, reading and Q&A that touched on the Singularity, its precedents, its discontents, and its inherent comedy -- all while 3D printers chattered in the background. And afterwards everyone got 3D printed miniatures of our heads!

We're making our final stops of tour tomorrow -- Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! -- in Rochester, NY, at RIT. Tell your friends!

Cory Doctorow & Charles Stross - The Rapture of the Nerds (Thanks, Joly!)


    1. Well, since my other comment was apparently ruled redundant, let me just confirm that there is indeed a very annoying high-pitched whine that makes it all but impossible to watch this video for some people.

      That is all.

  1. A fun, frantic talk and visually nice to watch but boy you seemed to be shouting over the noise of those stuff makers at certain points.

  2. 3D printers are obviously a disruptive technology — when you’re trying to give a reading in front of a few of them that are in full-swing!

  3. argh. i do hate that “ehhhh u havent reead that book xyz” . that’s indeed the typical rage of the nerds. people read all kinds of books, i think a good recommendation would have sufficed.
