Lebedev and Tolstaia during the interview (picture Eugene Gorny)

Last Saturday, Columbia University´s New Modes of Communication Group – a group with whose members the Future of Russian collective is well acquainted – invited both the renowned writer Tat´iana Tolstaia and her son, designer-cum-blogger Artemii Lebedev, for a double interview at the Harriman Institute. Our colleague Eugene Gornyi blogged about the event, adding photographs and a podcast of the entire interview. The latter – to be found here – is worth listening for the full 1,5 hour: it brims with intriguing (and, as was to be expected from the Tolstaia-Lebedev tandem, provocative) comments on the Russian-speaking Internet and new/social media.
UPDATE 08.04.2010: a video recording of the interview is now available online. A quick glance suggests that the quality of the recording is more than OK. Enjoy!
