Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief of MIT Technology Review, will conduct a wide-ranging but informal conversation with science fiction writer Neal Stephenson about his craft, preoccupations, influences, and inspirations. Among the issues they’ll discuss: the state and future of hard science fiction and how e-readers are influencing novels. At the end of an hour-long conversation with Pontin, Stephenson will take 30 minutes of questions from the audience. The event will be video taped and an edited version of the interview will appear in the 2012 edition of Technology Review’s annual science fiction special issue, TRSF.

Hosted by Technology Review with assistance from the MIT Graduate Program in Science Writing. Plan to arrive at 3:30 p.m. The program will commence at 4:00 p.m.
