Philip Pullman

I recently had the good fortune to collaborate on stage a couple of times with author Philip Pullman (His Dark Materials Trilogy, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Lyra's Oxford, etc).  He and I first met to discuss Sum at Queen Elizabeth Hall in November of 2009.  Miranda Richardson and Jarvis Cocker gave live readings of Sum stories at the event, and pre-recorded readings of stories were provided by Stephen Fry and Clarke Peters.

More recently Philip and I were on stage together at the Charleston Festival of Literature in the south of England. The event was moderated by author and documentary filmmaker Bill Nicholson. See a review of the event here.  

I can't say enough about Philip: he is smart, generous, terrifically talented, and a pleasure to collaborate with.

    Well before we understand how brains work, we may find ourselves able to digitally copy the brain's structure and able to download the conscious mind into a computer. What are the possibilities and challenges?
