A fantastic aggregate of interviews collected from Roy Christopher's own web site frontwheeldrive.com (now simply roychristopher.com). We don't just hear from scientists, writers, musicians, artists, technologists, and culture watchdogs, but rather people who span multiple classifications. That's what makes these interviewees really fascinating.

If you don't walk away from this book with the desire to check out the work of at least a dozen people represented in this compilation, you simply have n

There is a lot to love about Follow for Now, a collection of forty-three selected Q & A’s from the archives of frontwheeldrive.com. Here’s one: Most of the interviews are well under 2000 words, which keeps the pages turning at a quick clip. And here’s another: In the first half of the book, the well-known and obscure interviewees deliver lucid, fascinating answers (and pose further questions) about the state of technology, biology, consumer psychology, and all the intersections among them.

This book is mostly a collection of interviews with various people the author finds inspiring. I thought it was mostly a mixed bag.

While I skipped over large portions of the book, there was a diverse range of topics and some of th ...more

lots of fascinating (and bite-sized) interviews with the technorati class. since many of these come from the turn of the century, the collection is becoming more and more a part of the historical record rather than prognostications about the future.

I marshal the middle between Mathers and McLuhan.

I have since written about music, media, and culture for everything from magazines to blogs and journals to books. I hold a Ph.D. in Communication Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. I am currently a Professor of Com
