[Formerly Tech Book Club Boston] Reading books about technology and talking about how we write about technology. What will we read? Books about policy[Formerly Tech Book Club Boston]
Reading books about technology and talking about how we write about technology.
What will we read? Books about policy like The Master Switch and Captive Audience. Books that are hyper-optimisitic like The New Digital Age or critically pessimistic like To Save Everything: Click Here. Books about the future, like The Singularity Is Near. Books about the past, like River of Shadows or The Victorian Internet. We’ll probably skew towards non-fiction, but that won’t stop us from reading things like The Bleeding Edge, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, These Days, or Super Sad True Love Story when the mood strikes. Some of these are books I’ve loved, others I’ve been meaning to get around to, but they give a good sense of the range of things I’d like to read with you.
Who is this Book Club for? It’s for entrepreneurs. It’s for voracious readers. It’s for science and technology writers. It’s for futurists, and maybe even for skeptical semi-luddites. It’s for anyone who wanted to read these books I’ve listed already and just needed an excuse. It’s for anyone who writes up reviews in Goodreads, or thinks about writing blog posts about what they are reading but stop short for wanting time, or an audience. I’d love for this to develop into a consistent community, where we can pick up on threads and conversations from month to month, but I also want it to be open as new people become interest in book choices.
If any of this piques your interest, send me an email [ saramariewatson at gmail ] and I’ll add you to the list and Slack channel....more
