The interviews in the book are from around 2000, when dealing with technology and the other aspects the book deals with, most of the interviews are not relevant, still sum gems there, like the interview with Terence McKenna.
I've carried this book around with me for the past six months re-reading some chapters more than a few times and I think I can honestly say Follow For Now is just brilliant. That seems to me the only way to describe it. Brilliant interviews of brilliant people served up in a brilliant package.
First off it's a book jam packed with so much cutting edge thought you may feel like an alien extracted your brain and replaced it with a biologically engineered multi-core processor. It can also be compared to a bar in a sub-basement at MIT and shooting the bull with a collection of professors, computer geeks, multimedia gurus and severely gifted students.
The problem is the aliens may never land and I don't think there's a bar below MIT filled with Rhodes Scholars. But we do have Follow For Now and it's Roy Christopher's brain child.
These interviews were originally online at frontwheeldrive.com. Roy Christopher started an amazing website and decided to put it in book form. It's like a syringe filled with knowledge injected directly into your spinal column. Science, technology, media, music, culture, literature--kind of candy bowl filled with a cornucopia of information and everything you never thought to ask.
They say in philosophy it's not the answers but the questions that mean the most. Roy Christopher asks those questions and does all the work for you. Your job is to let it all seep in and try not to lose your mind while you enjoy the spectacular view.
