The Camp: Interview with creator Jacobs Langdon

Written by on March 6, 2007 | Interview Fragments, Transcript Fragments

Myla Glenford: Where did you get the idea for The Camp?

Jacobs Langdon: A couple of places. When I was a kid, there was this show on TV called Lost, and I wouldn’t miss a single episode. It was incredible. Great storyline, engrossing; it had a tremendous influence on my later ideas. I really loved the idea of a group of people facing the unknown, facing adversity, and trying to cope as best they could. Of course, at the same time, the War on Terror was only a few years old, and Guantanamo was still routinely in the headlines so I guess you can see some of that in there, too. There were a few other things, like the Stanford Prison Experiment that was later used to make the German film Das Experiment, old sci-fi films like The Running Man, uh, even 24. Yeah, there were loads of these little influences I could mention, but if I had to pick out one thing that really inspired me to do The Camp, it would have to be an old Japanese game show from the late nineties called Denpa Shonen.

Even worse, the growing evidence from Transhumanist hobbyists and the military that next-gen nanotech neural networks are entirely feasible and inevitable demonstrates that we are facing a threat never before seen, a threat even worse than that posed by the illegal file sharing and music download services that plagued the internet at the turn of the century.

From Prisons to Freedom: Curing Crime and Moulding Minds

Written by on December 7, 2006 | Transcript Fragments

The late Richard Dawkins once suggested that we would eventually look at social problems like crime as being the result of bad genes, and we would learn to fix them, just as we fix a faulty part in a computer or some other machine.

As you know, this technique was eventually developed, perfected and first used by my client, the Corrections Corporation of America, in conjunction with Wackenhut. Initially developed to help deal with terrorists held at detention facilities such as those at Guantanamo, Diego Garcia, and Afghanistan, and later to help rehabilitate American Muslims held in detention centers, the success ratio in rehabilitating these men, women and children back into society led to widespread usage through the CCA’s prison network.
