CfA Salon with Daniel Suarez, Bestselling Author of Daemon & Kill Decision
Monday, August 27, 2012 at 6:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Join Code for America for an evening of conversation and networking with author Daniel Suarez. Suarez, author of New York Times best seller Daemon, and most recently Kill Decision.
What does science fiction have to do with Code for America? In his books, Suarez takes the themes emerging from today's technological advances -- ranging from drones and sensors to the web itself -- and imagines compelling, striking, and instructive realities, which we should all consider and grapple with.
Daniel Suarez has designed and developed mission-critical software for the defense, finance, and entertainment industries.
