It has been almost two months since I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Natasha Vita-More at her family house in Scottsdale, Arizona.

During our 36 min conversation with Dr. Vita-More we […]

Robert Scoble is a Liaison officer for Rack Space, social media phenomenon, technology pundit with huge following, a journalist who has done thousands of interviews and a man who “always tries to have the front row seat on technology.” Needless to say, I was very happy to have Scoble on Singularity 1 on 1.

Stelarc has been on my guest wish list since the very beginning of my podcast and I was very happy to interview him on Singularity 1 on 1. […]
