Russell Blackford interview on YouTube

Adam Ford did this interview with me in October 2009, at my old house in Melbourne (shortly after last year's Atheist Alliance International Convention and a couple of months before I moved interstate).

It's divided into six parts, as follows:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/6/8Ly-KEqy0rs

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/5/uwPLob4tJ_Q

Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/3/cWijedQIrnQ

Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/2/gU0W8xmqEc0

Part 5: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/1/ID4j1pXf6f0

Part 6: http://www.youtube.com/user/singularitysoup#p/u/0/S-GxnXGkFL4

We discuss such topics as the book, 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists; atheism and secularism; indigenous spirituality; radical life extension; and technological change, including the Technological Singularity foreseen by Vernor Vinge, Ray Kurzweil and others.

Given the unembellished format, that came out as a rounded exploration of your position across your cluster of public interests. Well worth the fifty minutes to watch it all.

I also enjoyed the interview. It couldn't be more casual with people walking through. :)
