Interview on art + virtuality

I had the opportunity to participate in a seminar led by Thomas Zummer during my last semester at Tyler School of Art. He's a philosopher and artist whose understanding of the synergies of media, language, and artistic endeavor is comprehensive. This is a brief interview posted from a conference in Brussels last year. I apologize for the poor sound quality. Listen carefully, near the end of the interview he starts to talk about role-playing and game-space as a valid artistic mode that is collaborative and extensible in its very nature. Link.

This led me to waste the day watching lectures on the web. Google has several "Tech Talks" of general interest. The best ones I saw today were on the scientific method and information visualization.
