A Look at the Past, a Peek at the Future

Nick Gillespie from Reason TV sits down with the smart, engaging and inspiring Louis Rossetto – founder of the brilliant Wired Magazine – to look at what changed in the twenty years since the publication started, and where things will go next.

As always with anything made by the boys and girls at Reason, this video is well worth 15 minutes of your time.

In 1971 Rossetto co-authored a piece in the New York Times Magazine describing libertarianism as the next great social/political movement for young people, tired of the centralised zero-sum game currently played.

It’s great to see he’s still unrepentant in his outlook. And the evidence is on his side.

Cyberspace Finished…?

Well, I think I’ve gone and finished my new flick, Cyberspace. I’ll post it when I can, but I completed the final render today, and I have a feeling it might be pretty much done.

Which means that I’ll probably tinker with it some more tonight…!

Movies, movies!

I’ve got a couple of flicks to tell you about that are rolling around in my head at the moment:

There’s a fictional short film comp coming up in March, so the first film I want to make over the next couple of weeks has a working title of Cyberspace. It’s about an MIT scientist who develops a small ship that he hopes to beam into the world wide web and destroy a dangerous virus that’s been crippling the internet.

I’m not one for sci-fi usually, but it gives me the great excuse to make another movie with fast ships, action and explosions. Some filmmaking friends of mine have heard the details of what I want to do, and said they were concerned that I might not be able to pull it off. They may well be very right, but that just encourges me to do it even more.

The other isn’t as timely, but certainly something I’d love to do. I want to make a film about Milton Friedman, the late great Nobel prize-winning economist. Details are sketchy at present, but I’ll let you know more as and when!

And as always, drop me an email if you have any cool ideas or comments!
