Welcome to Inkwell.vue, an unusual WELL conference that can be read without a password.

Currently in the Inkwell:

Matrix Redux

Elon Musk and others, including astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, believe that there is a significant chance that our world is just an elaborate simulation created by an advanced civilization. However, it seems just as likely that they are wrong.

Join futurists Derek Woodgate and Patrick Lichty as they discuss the intersection of technology and reality in our digital present (and future).

What do you think?

This conversation is open to all–you do not need a WELL membership to read and participate!

The books and commentary we’ve spotlighted over the years run the gamut from timely political commentary, to noteworthy blogs, to gardening and cooking books, to parenting issues, to the social implications of new technologies. We’ve delved into the evolution of online culture and communications technologies, and we’ve explored improvisational and collaborative branches of music history. Who can say what we’ll talk about next?

Hosted by: Jon Lebkowsky (jonl), Ted Newcomb (tcn), Julie Sherman (julieswn), Cynsa Bonorris (cynsa), and Brady Lea (brady)
