According to Ayesha Khanna, the end of the so-called "Information Age" is nigh.

Ayesha is the the director of the Hybrid Reality Institute, and she says we're starting to enter a new age -- the "Hybrid Age" -- which is characterized by pervasive computing, biotechnology and nanotechnology, and "the emergence of technologies as a social actor." That is, a time defined by our social interactions with the machines around us.

This week, Nora interviewed Ayesha Khanna about the hybrid age, and about another of Ayesha's areas of expertise: smart cities. You can hear the full, uncut interview below, or download the MP3. [runs 32:15]
