Just when they were coming out so slowly you thought the show was defunct, along comes a new episode of Voices in Your Head, my show on IT Conversations. This one is with SF author James P. Hogan. I consciously was looking for someone from a different subsection of the genre than my previous guests, and Mr. Hogan was great. We talked about a lot of good stuff in his writing and his background in writing hard science fiction. Since he is published by Baen Books I definitely wanted to get his take on their innovative use of electronic books. Even better, I found an interview from him about 5 years ago when he expressed his skepticism about ebooks. He has changed his mind and really went off on that, talking about the silliness of suing your customers (ala RIAA) which led into us talking about post-scarcity economics (an SF idea if there ever was.) I had a take, and I was a little surprised at how similar his was to mine.
Let me know what y’all think about it, especially those who have heard all three shows. Do you think this stands up with the other two? I think it does, but then I have a dog in this race. Tell me true, I can take it.
