Dear Friends of Future Quake,
Ben Carmack and I returned from Nashville, Tennessee, today after a
great session with Doctor Future, participating in the 300th (and
final*) Future Quake show. Present at the recording session were many
of the Future Quake cast, including Mrs. Future, Tom Bionic, Emmett,
Pyro, Chris White, Merv, Futurian Bob, and Adam Sayne. Other Futurians were
present in emails, and also in live remote interviews, from
South Africa and the Pacific Northwest. The recording process was
over five hours -- that's right, five -- and it was great.
file will be a great starting point for people who want to explore the
seven years of archive files. Many significant show topics were
referenced by name, and some by show number. We covered a lot of good
ground, and had fun while we did so.
There are a number of sites and projects related to Future Quake that are (1)
already in existence, or (2) starting up as we speak, or (3) in planning
stage and ready to start up in the very near Future.
For his part, as you probably know, Doc Future will be devoting
more of his time to the completion of a couple of books that he has
under construction, and that he considers to be of some importance. But
he will probably be available for interviews, etc, with Futurians who
have projects or web presence.
I will post any and all comments, updates, and links to related shows,
you-tube projects, documentaries, and web sites as I know of them. For this purpose, I have created a permanent page titled, Future Quake Friends.
Please keep me, and this site, informed and up to date.
Thanks. -- Robert
* We may recall Garrison Keillor's famous "final performance" of A Prairie Home Companion that aired in 1987, and hope that Dr. Future will, in this matter, follow this worthy precedent and return soon, and vigorously, to the Net.

The permanent page, Future Quake Friends, will appear in the band of links at the top of this site. If at any time you do not see it there, look for a link to it in the sidebar. It does exist at this site as a permanent page.
