I've got a couple of hometown appearances coming up, including a rare
west-side event: on Sunday, April 7 at 4PM, I'll be at Burbank's Dark
Delicacies for a final signing in their old store before they occupy
their new digs around the corner, and then I'm taking off my writer hat
and putting on my activist hat to do two more events in the area.

On Thursday, April 11, I'm helping the San Diego Public Library
celebrate its 40th anniversary with a keynote speech from 7-9PM at the
Central Library's Neil Morgan Auditorium (330 Park Blvd., San Diego
92101): my theme will be " libraries as one of the few remnants of a
world where people were valued because of their humanity, not their
money, and how that works in the current moment of extreme inequality,
epistemological incoherence, and fear of imminent collapse" (the event
is free, but seating is limited; the Friends of the San Diego Public
Library will hold you a seat if you pre-order a copy of my new book
Radicalized from their bookstore).

On Friday, April 12, I'll be at UCLA from 7-930PM for a two-part event
called After Disruption, alongside Britt Paris from Data & Society,
Sarah T. Roberts from the Department of Information Studies, and Saba
Waheed from the UCLA Labor Center. It's sponsored by README and the LA
Cryptoparty and will include "A conversation on Big Tech, the future of
labor, and how systems have successfully been co-opted in the past" and
"A collaborative, participatory workshop led by README and LA
Cryptoparty where audience and speakers join together to re-imagine how
platforms function." It's also free to attend but the organizers would
like you to RSVP.

I hope to see you there!
