Wow, they really got these online fast — yay! All the audio from the talks, discussions and panels at Arse Elektronika 2008 are now on this page and available for free downloading/listening. If you just want to jump right to the panel I was on, “The Erotic of the Machine”, it’s right here (MP3 link) and it’s about a little over an hour long. Highly recommended if you’re interested in sex and machines (and love and robots), though some of the accents are rather thick. It was a fun panel.
