(video) A conversation on Three-Body
I think Three-Body is the most important science fiction of the 21st century so far.
This is a conversation on “Three-Body” - a TV series produced by Tencent Video, based on Cixin Liu’s science fiction masterpiece “The Three-Body Problem.” See my review of the first 12 episodes. See also this recent review by The New York Times (unpaywalled copy).
I think “Three-Body” - the novels and the TV shows (Netflix is also making one) - is the most important science fiction of the 21st century so far. Derik Schwalen joined me to celebrate and discuss “Three-Body” at a recent Turing Church meeting.
I host regular Turing Church meetings, via Zoom, usually on the first Saturday of every month, at 11am ET (8am PT, 5pm CET). This is convenient for me and should be convenient for people in many timezones (sorry Australians, not for you guys). See the Turing Church meetings calendar if you want to participate. Occasionally I may have to skip or reschedule a meeting. If so, I’ll post a notice in this newsletter as well.
Turing Church meetings are often recorded and published in the Turing Church podcast. But all meetings have an off-the-record part or are not recorded at all on request of the participants.
The next Turing Church meeting will take place on Saturday, March 4, at 11am ET (8am PT, 5pm CET). You are invited! Check the Turing Church meetings calendar first, then feel free come, listen, and discuss whatever you like. The Zoom access coordinates are in the Turing Church meetings calendar.
