123: Eyes of the Numerati



KMO surveys the emerging statistical panopticon with Stephen Baker, author of the Numerati. How much do we reveal about ourselves and our lives via the information that leaks out from our cell phones, web browsers, and credit card purchases? Who collects that information, and what can they deduce about us by applying arcane mathematical methodologies to the statistical detritus of our lives?

Musical interlude: Beautiful Night by Tom Langford.

In the beginning of the podcast I read a short passage from Postsingular by Rudy Rucker. You can download the entire novel for free here:

Oh, KMO... I SO wish I could have seen you at Coalessence.
Honestly the most wholly amazing event I have ever experienced. I drove right throught Berryville on the way, it wasn't even that bad. It was kind of lovely really.

I'm glad you got to go and that there was a representative of the C-Realm tribe in attendance. I SO wish I could have been there.
