Excellent Talks this Week

Three excellent talks are scheduled for the Peninsula this week. The first is tonight at Bay CH I: Fred Turner will talk about his new book, From Counterculture to Cyberculture: How the Whole Earth Catalog Brought Us Virtual Community. His talk is at PARC tonight at 7:30pm.    (LJQ)

Tomorrow, Allison Fine will talk about her new book, Momentum: Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age. It’s required reading for folks in foundations or nonprofits. The talk will be at Margaret Jacks Hall at Stanford tomorrow at 7pm.    (LJR)

On Thursday at 4pm, Jim Spohrer will speak at PARC on his Service Science initiative at IBM. If you haven’t heard him give this talk yet, you need to go. His vision and approach are extraordinary.    (LJS)

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make Fred’s talk tonight, but I am planning to be at Allison’s, and I’m hoping to make Jim’s.    (LJT)
