Science Fiction & Social Media

Playing tracks by

Soulphonic Soundsystem.

On today's SMALL WORLD we’ll talk with Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing fame and author of his recent book, Makers, about eReaders and digital rights management. We’ll also talk with Annalee Newitz, the editor-in-chief of the io9, a blog that focuses on science fiction and futurism, about how we’ll get our media tomorrow. J.C. Hutchins, the author and podcaster of 7th Son, will talk about the changing role of publishers and content creators. Steve Eley, the founder of the Escape Pod science fiction short story podcast, will talk about the possible demise of science fiction magazines.

The incidental music heard on today’s show comes to us by way of the Soulphonic Soundsystem. We heard Soulphonic Soundsystem’s “Motanica,” “Catalina Sunset,” “Mr. Sparkle,” “The Ambassador” and “Nutmeg.”
