 Tomorrow night (Thursday, April 11), I'm headlining a free event
celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Friends of the San Diego Public
Library from 7-9PM: it's at the Central Library's Neil Morgan Auditorium
(330 Park Blvd., San Diego 92101). The tl;dr of my speech: "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.

Then on Friday, April 12 I'll be at UCLA from 7-930 for After
Disruption, a panel and workshop sponsored by README and the LA
Cryptoparty, with Britt Paris from Data & Society, Sarah T. Roberts from
the Department of Information Studies, and Saba Waheed from the UCLA
Labor Center. Our theme is: "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.

Then on Sunday, April 14 I'm appearing at the LA Times Festival of Books
for a conversation with John Scalzi, moderated by Maryelizabeth
Yturralde from Mysterious Galaxy books.

I hope to see you there!
