From 2006 to 2016 I published a popular science website called Machines Like Us, which focused primarily on cognitive science and artificial intelligence. The site ultimately hosted some 20,000 articles, held a sizeable subscriber base, and was a respected resource for daily science news.


During that time I conducted and published numerous interviews with prominent scientists, researchers, creative individuals, and academics, and I include some of them here—for archival purposes.
