Three upcoming events in New York City

I’m going to be in New York May 26 through May 30th and I’ve got three big public events set up during that time.

May 28, 3:00 pm: Join Dean Putney, BoingBoing’s intrepid tech guru, and me for an informal Memorial Day picnic in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. We’ll be meeting out front of the Brooklyn Museum and we’ll be bringing bubbles. You bring your food and any cool projects you’d like to show off to other Happy Mutants.

May 29, 6:00 pm: I’ll be talking to the Science Writers of New York about my book, Before the Lights Go Out, the process of book writing, and the benefits of working online. The talk will be at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 219 West 40th Street, in room 330. It’s free and open to the public, but you do need to RSVP. If you want to buy a copy of Before the Lights Go Out, I’ll have some on hand to sell and sign. They’re $24 and I can accept cash or check.

May 30, 6:30 pm: I’ll be leading a panel on decentralized/distributed electricity generation. From DIY home power projects, to the benefits (and problems) of fitting smaller scale power into the grid, this panel will look at what happens when we start making electricity on a smaller scale. Joining me are Chris Hackett—host of the Science Channel’s Stuck with Hackett—and Susan Covino of PJM Interconnect, one of the independent organizations that controls movement of electricity around the grid. Again, this is something you should RSVP for.  It’ll be at 199 Lafayette Street, Third Floor, in Manhattan. If you want to buy a copy of Before the Lights Go Out, I’ll have some on hand to sell and sign. They’re $24 and I can accept cash or check.

Hope to see you at these events!

    Maggie, saw you on C-SPAN2 just now re-broadcast from earlier this month and I was fascinated by your presentation. You are so easy to understand and compelling that I hope your message about the life of an idea and the understanding of how the basics of an idea such as electricity generation become understood as widely as possible. Hope to see you in Madison, Wisconsin sometime! Dave de Felice
