Ted Chiang on Writing

Posted on Sat 24 July 2010 in Dispatches • 1 min read

Great interview with Ted Chiang, who happens to be a rather brilliant science fiction writer. Seriously, if you have not read his wonderful story “Exhalation”, you have missed a gem. You can also hear an audio production of that story here.

There’s lots of good stuff in this interview. Chiang talks about writing, his process, thoughts on AI, and the differences between science and magic, as well as the differences between science and religion. It’s an interesting conversation, and well worth your time to read.
