This Friday Luis de Miranda - novelist, philosopher and cultural commentator - comes to London after visits to Iceland, Kaliningrad and Paris. 

Luis will be presenting the English translations of two of his books, "Is a new life possible?, an essay on Deleuze and the revolution", and the novel "Who killed the poet?"

The event, hosted by openDemocracy editor Tony Curzon Price, will take place at the Hub on York Way, King's Cross. Register for tickets here (entry is free).

In this podcast prefiguring the event, Luis and Tony explore how the digital realm has changed us.

Are we need-machines, or only made so?

If you live by the code, will the code destroy you?

'L'etre ou le Neon", that is the question
