Review: Inventing the Future With Robert Tercek
Inventing the Future is a live news program featuring coming trends that will shape society by Robert Tercek. Up on the web so far is the Pilot, the first episode from the recent New Media Expo, and the second episode focused on Synthetic Biology.
The format is essentially a classic talk show and includes Robert presenting to a live audience, interviewing experts and luminaries, generally followed by a panel or group discussion. Robert is a great and sought after speaker world wide with extensive television experience. It shows. The result is enhanced by the professional look and camera work in this program and the expert production values continue through out. I can’t wait to see where this show goes and we can expect a lot of coverage of topics of interest to Humanity+ readers.
Compatible with the late night talk show format, I also love the fact that there is a house band 🙂
This show is a rare intellectual treat in my opinion, however the program is a talk show centered around conversations between people and is of “talking head” form that not everyone will find riveting.
H+ readers will probably want to check out the synthetic biology episode first which covers a variety of interesting transhumanist topics. The first episode is from the Digital Media Expo in Las Vegas and correspondingly is more focused on business issues and digital media enterprises, future of television, and mobile technology. It might not be of interest to all readers therefore.
Episode 1 – New Media Expo
Episode 2 – Synthetic Biology
