I've spent the past week at a writers' retreat in an undisclosed location (I'm still here!). It's been insanely productive. I've written a 21,000-word novella, rewritten two partial novels, worked on my latest collaboration with Charlie Stross, critiqued about 20 stories, read a friend's book and critiqued it, and caught up on some reading (and I've still got three days left, and still to come: nonfiction book proposal, rewrite the new novella, and catch up on other projects and projectlets).
He is the outreach coordinator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an award winning science fiction writer (Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, A Place So Foreign and Eight More), journalist and editor of the Boing Boing Blog, co-organiser of the O'Reilly ETCon, and who knows what else.
Therefore I am very happy that he makes time in his busy schedule to speak at our next Futurist Salon Friday the 19th of September 7pm. He will talk about copyright, scarcity, and spectrum, with lots of rhetorical flourishes...
We will be back at the Barnes and Noble bookstore at the Hillsdale Shopping Center just across of the San Mateo Caltrain Station. 11 West Hillsdale Blvd., Hillsdale Shopping Center San Mateo, CA 94403 650-341-5560
It usually goes until 9pm and if you are up for it you can join us for dinner afterwards.
