Comment from Rachel:

It was great to talk to you all today. From my perspective an hour went very fast and I am sure that some of you have questions. If you’d like to read more about the idea of ‘living architecture’ – which you might want to broadly think of as being ‘design with biology’ then you might like to read this excerpt from my recent TED Book which is an e-book that is available on Kindle, Nook and i-Book … but in case you can’t get e-books then this review in Fast Company is pretty fair and covers some of the ideas about the potential consequences related to a change in the way we think about – and approach the practice of ‘making’ ….

There is also something else that I never mentioned that will be relevant to your digital studies which is the NBIC convergence .. this is a ‘roughly speaking’ a quest for an information singularity that enables us to access all kinds of different media through one space … so for example, it could be possible to control the production of biofuel using mobile phone technology. I spoke a little bit about this at the ITU in a story that I wrote called ‘Futurella’ … not sure if that is online … it’s only about 5 minutes long.

I think it’s still online …

Good luck with your projects …
