‘Philip K Dick Tweets’ Begins

April 8, 2016

Very excited to start off (@DoAndroidsTweet).  It’s taken me a while to find someone who’s fascinated me as much as Wittgenstein and Oppenheimer did, although I’m not sure even a futuristic super-computer of Philip K Dick’s devising could work out the logic behind the sequencer Wittgenstein – Oppenheimer – Dick – (?? what next ??).

I think it was Paul Verhoeven’s ‘Total Recall‘ (1990) that switched me on to Philip K Dick’s work.  Then the short stories, some of his more famous novels, and Spielberg’s ‘Minority Report‘ (2002).  It was when recently reading his short story,  ‘The Minority Report‘ (1956), that I got really interested in Philip K Dick the person. The more I read, the more amazed I was that no biopic has yet been made of this man’s life.  I read Lawrence Sutin’s ‘Divine Invasions‘ (1989) and knew I had to fire up the old coin-operated, part-man-part-android tweet machine.  For more on the project, please see here. Hope you like the tweets.
