Brain Jazz: A Mind-Jam with Jason Silva and Douglas Rushkoff

Dec 17, 2013

Two leading visionaries take us on a trip to the edge of technology, reality and humanity. Jason Silva, host of Nat Geo's "Brain Games," has been described as part Timothy Leary, part Ray Kurzweil and part Neo from The Matrix. Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock, has been dubbed "the brilliant heir to Marshall McLuhan," and "one of five most influential thinkers of our time." With complementary but contrasting outlooks on the fate of our species, these two brain warriors engage in a lively no-holds-barred conversation about the human capacity for thought, creativity, self-modification and collective transformation.
