Keynote speaker Annalee Newitz writes about science, culture and the future. She can name every monster Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla) ever fought, and sometimes uses the f-word in a headline. Her latest book “Scatter, Adapt and Remember: How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction” focuses on humanity’s long history of dodging the bullet of extinction and explores how scientific breakthroughs today will help us avoid disasters tomorrow. Let yourself be led away from apocalyptic thinking, into a future where we live to build a better world.
