Clive Thompson is a writer who covers science and technology. He's a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine and Wired, and has published the blog CollisionDetection.net for eight years. His journalism has been widely anthologized, and he's received several awards for his writing, including an Overseas Press Council award and two Mirror Awards. Clive has been a performing musician for 25 years, and is currently working on a book about the future of thought.
Clive and I have had some great discussions over the years about the science behind thought and creativity, attention deficit as an evolutionary adaptation to a complex world, improvisation, and the DIY movement in art.
