Bohemian Rhapsody

Sorry about heading, but I couldn't resist. I was featured as the cover story in this week's edition of my local Sonoma newspaper, the North Bay Bohemian, which was especially fun because of the cover's vertiginous artwork. Other media highlights this month include being interviewed about YouTube on BBC's Culture Show and critiquing Silicon Valley transparency on the Kulturzeit, the German ZDF/3sat tv program.  Also check out my recent TechcrunchTV interviews with the smart economist Tyler Cowen and Internet Hall of Famer Brewster Kahle. I've been doing a lot of public speaking in the last few weeks too. I'm just back from a tour of Asia - having given speeches about digital disruption in Kuala Lumpur and at the Rappler/Google Big Data event in Manila . And i'm returning to Asia this coming week, keynoting the Singapore Fix Conference on Thursday, where I'll be talking about the impact of the digital revolution on the financial industry. Earlier this month, I also had the honor of being the featured speaker at the opening convocation at New Jersey's Rampapo College. All 900 students in Rampapo's freshman class read Digital Vertigo with one or two even agreeing with it.

I'll also be speaking at Creative Convergence Silicon Valley (C2SV) in San Jose on September 26 and then moderating a panel about wearable computing at the Glazed Conference in San Francisco on September 30. I hope to see some you somewhere in the next couple of weeks so that we can figure out if this is the real life or just fantasy.
