Although they may not have the same luster as the butterfly or the same publicist as the honeybee, termites nonetheless possess a heretofore unrealized potential to transform how we humans deal with the world we've made for ourselves. Asking the question What Can Termites Teach Us About the Future of Technology?, Lisa Margonelli — author of Underbug: An Obsessive Tale of Termites and Technology ($27, Farrar, Straus & Giroux) — brings her keen and insightful grasp of termitology to Zócalo to demonstrate how these occasionally satanic bugs can teach humanity about everything from communication to climate change to indigestion.
