Der Digitale Planet, from 1998 (audio only, available for download)

Der Digitale Planet was a conference held in 1998, in Germany (I think). Unfortunately, there is very little about it on the web, as a Google search shows. You can find some video (in rm format), but the quality is very low.

The speakers were five writers/scientists that I like and admire: Douglas Adams, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Jared Diamond and Steven Pinker. In the conference, they discuss literature, science, religion, evolution, cognition and other topics that have interested me ever since I can remember.

I have extracted the audio from the video available on YouTube, filtered it a little (sorry, I am not an audio engineer), and split it into files. You can download them (in mp3 format) from my Google Drive.

The introduction is in German. All the other files are in English. Enjoy.
