Rudy Rucker

Rudy Rucker

Appearing: Saturday, Sunday

Rudy Rucker has published about forty books, both pop science and SF novels in the cyberpunk and transreal styles. He received Philip K. Dick awards for his books Software and Wetware, which were the first (1982) to use the notion of making software copies of human minds. He earned a Ph.D. in higher mathematics. He worked as a professor of computer science at San Jose State in Silicon Valley. His most recent novel Juicy Ghosts is about telepathy, immortality, and the removal of an evil and insane President who tries to steal an election. Needless to say, he had to publish that one himself. But he scored big with a Kickstarter.

Creating The Improbable.

We believe in every single person’s ability to create the improbable and to learn about themselves and the world in the process. Like any artifact worth searching for, sometimes all it takes is a bit of digging in the right place to find your unique ability. We seek to aid in this endeavor.

At SiliCon with Adam Savage, our goal is to bring together people who have long histories of creating, from filmmakers and actors, to artists, authors, engineers, scientists, technologists, and makers to share their creativity and enthusiasm. We know that the sum of all this interaction is greater than its individual parts. We celebrate the spark we get when we meet new people, surmount new challenges, exult and share with each other.
