The talks should be fun, I’m passing through:
Trottier Symposium in McGill on October 18:
(Also passing through Toronto, but no public events there I’m afraid.)
I’m talking at Barnes and Noble, Upper East Side, October 20, 7:00 pm.
150 East 86th Street, New York, NY 10028
Free entry, and there’ll probably be nobody there, so we can hang out and play Go or something.
Lastly I’m off to the Poptech nerdfest in Maine October 23:
Do let me know if there’s anything or anyone interesting I should check out in those places, I think I’ll be mostly doing media stuff and finishing the new book on my laptop in darkened rooms, but distractions are always welcome. Having done about a zillion free public talks in the UK over the past 5 years I’m sad there are no more public events, hopefully I’ll get the time to make it back to the US and Canada another time.
Here’s the US edition, click for Amazon.
And here’s the Canadian edition, click for Amazon.
I’ll be very interested to see how all this goes in America. About half the web traffic to this blog is from the US, and the book really surprised me in the UK (250,000 copies so far and Christmas number one in the non-fiction charts, call me Cliff Richard). I doubt it will be a huge splash in America – how English am I? – but if I’m honest, I write and tweet and talk mainly as a motivator to find and consume more interesting stuff for myself, so what I’m really hoping for, as I get to know these countries better, is more US and Canadian tips, stories, and food for thought.
Send me stuff!
