Event Details

How will humans shape the future and how will the future shape us? Best-selling author and tech-futurist David Brin shares his thoughts on the question and discusses ideas from the audience on how to help our world run better. Please join us for Future Salon on Wednesday, February 5 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in Café 3 on the SAP Palo Alto campus.

Brin is a leading commentator and speaker on modern trends. His non-fiction book, The Transparent Society, won the Freedom of Speech Award of the American Library Association. Published in 1999, the book details his vision of the coming surveillance state and the need to ‘watch the watchers’. His novels include Earth, The Postman (adapted to film and starring Kevin Costner) and Hugo Award winners Startide Rising and The Uplift War.
