If you're in NYC on April 17th, definitely consider attending Rhizome.org's new conference, Seven on Seven.Seven on Seven - Rhizome (Thanks, Fred!)
The idea behind Seven on Seven is to pair seven leading artists with seven technologists to see what they can produce. There's already a lot of buzz about the event, and for good reason, our lineup is stellar:
Artists: Cao Fei, Evan Roth, Aaron Koblin, Monica Narula, Ryan Trecartin, Tauba Auerbach, and Marc Andre Robinson
Technologists: Jeff Hammerbacher, Joshua Schachter, Matt Mullenweg, Andrew Kortina, Hilary Mason, Ayah Bdeir, and David Karp
Check the link for full details, artist and technologist pairings, and ticket prices.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
