I’ll be talking about some of the themes of The Shallows in three upcoming events in the Northeast:
This Saturday, Oct. 16, I’ll be at the Boston Book Festival, participating in a panel discussion called “Internet or Not?” with William Powers (author of Hamlet’s BlackBerry) and Eric Haseltine (author of Long Fuse, Big Bang), moderated by MIT’s Andrew McAfee. It’s free, and details are here.
On Monday, Oct. 18, I’ll be giving a talk at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. The talk is part of the school’s fall symposium, called “Slowing in a Wired World,” and it’s free, too. Details.
Next month, on the evening Nov. 9, I’ll be giving a talk at the New York Academy of Sciences as part of a program called “From Stone Tools to the Internet: How Humans Adapt to Technology.” This one’s going to cost you $25, and you’ll find details here.
