Yesterday I (UK based) was interviewed for the second time by Jay Ackroyd (New York) for the cafepress (www.cafepress.com), on the topic of Virolution. The previous interview, two months ago, was on the topic of Metamorphosis. Many thanks to Sherry Reson (California I think) for her help in setting it up and guiding me through a very unfamiliar domain. It was a little bizarre but tremendous fun. I really enjoyed it.
I sat (or rather my handsome and younger avatar) sat in an easy chair on stage, with Jay's avatar, and watched the audience duly arrive -- ladies in sweeping fantasy attire, young kids on bikes, etc, all chatting amiably and participating in the subsequent interview and debate -- and somehow we interacted in this "inworld" of cyberspace. The auditorium appeared to be full and there were lots of intriguing questions and ideas floating around.
It went well and so people are wondering about another interview. I would be very interested in the theme of science in fiction. What do you guys out there think?
