Drones will deliver food to us. Drones will be able to extinguish fires. Drones will be used to relay Internet signals and make the world more connected.

These all sound like great ideas, so why aren’t there more drones in the sky today? There are many answers to that question, some of which relate to engineering and some of which are about the regulatory barriers.

Chris Anderson is the CEO of 3D Robotics, a drone company which he started seven years ago. Before 3DR, Chris worked for many years as a journalist writing about technology and science. He was the editor-in-chief at Wired for 11 years, a writer for The Economist for 7 years, and spent 3 years at both of the leading scientific journals, Nature and Science. Chris also wrote The Long Tail, the influential 2004 book which described a set of emergent Internet trends.

Chris joins the show for a discussion about drones, journalism, and his perspective on modern technology.
