Andrew Marr on “anti-news”

It’s well worth listening to Andrew Marr’s latest edition of Start the Week in which he goes back over some of the best interviews and guests of the year.

He chooses to focus on “anti-news” – developments and trends that don’t make the headlines but nevertheless have a huge long term impact on the way we live our lives. Futurismic stuff, in fact.

Topics include human identity, bioscience, genetic predetermination, information technology, black swans, and the morality of nanotechnology.
