Tuesday, January 29, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PST)
Mountain View, CA
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Following up on 2009’s Too Soon to Tell, The Company We Keep is a second compilation of essays based on and growing out of "The Known World" column in Computer magazine. Like the original column, this collection explores the human side of how technology is developed, deployed, and used.
The book examines the development of digital technology by describing how this technology affects the communities that build, adapt, govern, and dispose of it.
We are pleased to welcome David back to the Museum. He will discuss how this book came to be and do some readings for us as well. Please plan to join us.
David will be signing copies of his book immediately following the program’s end.
