Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Thomas Seeley is a professor of neurobiology and behavior at Cornell University. He talks about the social organization of a bee colony with Steve Paulson. And intrepid TTBOOK intern John Pederson visits local bee keeper Mary Seeley as she's setting up some new hives.

Next, Len Fisher is the author of The Perfect Swarm: The Science of Complexity in Everyday Life. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about "swarm intelligence" and how it differs from "group think."

Then, E.O. Wilson may know more about ants than anyone else on the planet. He and his colleague, Bert Holldobler, are the authors of The Superorganism. It's a book about the organization and communication among the millions of members of the colonies of certain species of ants. Wilson tells Steve Paulson they do it all with chemical signals secreted by their bodies.

And finally, Jaron Lanier is a Silicon Valley visionary and a virtuoso musician and composer. His new book is You Are Not A Gadget. The man who popularized "virtual reality" in the 80s tells Anne Strainchamps why he thinks Web 2.0 technology is erasing our sense of our own identity. [Broadcast Date: January 28, 2011]

Listen to You Are Not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier.
