The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.
About This Talk
In a special daytime event co-authors Neal Stephenson (Anathem, Seveneves) and Nicole Galland (The Fool's Tale) discuss their novel The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. with Long Now’s Alexander Rose on the day after it was released. It's a book that features ancient texts, 19th century technology, time travel, a language expert protagonist, and magic. Perfect for a Long Now talk.
