“Sci-Fi” with Jeremy Keith and Steph Troeth
I am stoked to welcome my two guests for this show. Not only, because I like Steph and Jeremy, but also, because you’d probably expect them to talk web. But you guessed wrong here.
This show is all about Sci-Fi. With its roots in fantasy, horror, superhero and alike, Sci-Fi has a lot of subgenres about which we’ll hear and learn today. Jeremy will take us on a whirlwind tour of the history of sci-fi in his time machine, and Steph will ignite our imagination for a positive climate future with Solarpunk.
Fasten your seatbelt, we are about to take off …
About Jeremy Keith
Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, Resilient Web Design, and, most recently, Going Offline.
He curated the dConstruct conference for a number of years as well as Brighton SF, and he organised the world's first Science Hack Day. He also made the website Huffduffer to allow people to make podcasts of found sounds—it's like Instapaper for audio files.
Hailing from Erin's green shores, Jeremy maintains his link to Irish traditional music running the community site The Session. He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane.
Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on adactio.com, where he has been writing for over fifteen years.
About Steph Troeth
Steph is an independent strategist and researcher. Currently she is a senior research consultant with Healthily, a health startup based in London. Prior to that, she was a senior researcher on contract at Google, working on their internal product suite that keeps Google’s services up 99.999% of the time. She was the Head of Research at Clearleft, working with clients such as Spotify, Virgin Holidays and Greater London Authority. She also previously led design research at the Telegraph and spearheaded European customer research with MailChimp. In 2020, she took a writing sabbatical to make progress on a book on storytelling techniques and product strategy.
In 20 years of working in the digital industry, Steph has worn many hats, including the product lead for a startup in digital publishing and a director of technology at a digital agency in Montreal. She is also a regular speaker at conferences and guest lectures annually at the University of Greenwich. She has a completely unrelated addiction to writing science-fiction short stories. When not bound to a digital device, she makes things by hand, grows edible flowers and has a tendency to cook enough to feed a continent at a time. She now lives on her fourth continent on her fourth island in the UK.
