My third favorite all-time movie is The Italian Job (behind Vertigo & Shadow of a Doubt). I even managed to squeeze a reference about it into Digital Vertigo (the scene in the Oxford jail). So it's appropriate that I'm about to embark on my own lower case italian job to celebrate the publication of the Italian version of Vertigine Digitale. Beginning April 28, I'll be in Perugia, Milan, Venice, Bologna and (for my sins) Capri where I'll be speaking at an event about trend setting. Here's the full schedule of "Il Tour Di Andrew Keen In Italia". Before Italy, I'll be at my favorite European tech conference - The Next Web extravaganza in Amsterdam. This coming Thursday, I'm doing a debate with my best enemy, Robert Scoble, about Google Glass. Given that Scoble is now wearing his all-seeing Glass in public urinals, our debate might turn out to be quite a pissing contest. Then on Friday, I'll be interviewing my old friend Gary Shapiro, CEA President and the author of the best-selling Ninja Innovation.
Please also check out my CNN piece this week on the potentially positive impact of networked technology on autism. And to temper such uncharacteristic optimism, you might also enjoy my latest TCTV interview with Silicon Valley arch-critic Evgeny Morozov.
See you in Capri.
