I somehow agreed to do two lightning talks in two weeks, so if you’re in the Detroit area you have two chances to hear me speak fast for 5 minutes. Brevity is the soul of wit, and since I love twitter so much, this is a neat way to twitterize my academic talks.
This Thursday, 2/25, at the Anderson Theater in front of the Dymaxion House at the Henry Ford Museum, I’ll be speaking at Pecha Kucha Night Detroit, which we’re hosting in conjunction with our new design exhibit. I’m talking about my job, basically, and different ways of thinking about “connecting to people through technology,” including our ham radio collections.
Then, next Thursday, 3/4, at the Blau Auditorium at the U of Mich business school, I’m participating in Ignite Ann Arbor. I’ll be talking about mechanical television and our guy C. Francis Jenkins.
