Jaunty June

June will, I hope, be jaunty. I'm starting with a couple of engaging Futurecast events. The first is this coming Thursday (June 4) in Palo Alto, when I interview Nir Eyal, the author of the excellent Hooked, about the ups and downs of addictive technology. Then on Monday June 8, Futurecast comes to Washington DC, where I'm in conversation with former AOL CEO Steve Case about innovation outside Silicon Valley. We've still got a few seats left for each event, so please let me know if you want to come.

The Internet Is Not The Answer continues to make news. This coming Saturday June 6, I'll be speaking in Berkeley about the book at the Bay Area Book Festival. Then on June 11, I'm in Germany, keynoting the Interactive Cologne Festival. On June 12, I'm in London, at the Vanity Fair/Intelligence Squared Digital Summit, doing a Jeremy Paxman moderated debate about the (failed) Internet utopia. On June 16, I'm in Munich, speaking at the W&V Marketing Conference. Then on June 17, I'm back in London, in conversation at an Idler magazine event with the writer Will Self. On June 18, I'm speaking at the Sunday Times Festival of Education in Berkshire. And hence to Toronto, where I'm schlepping my shtick to Moses Znaimer's Ideacity conference on June 19. 

Phew. What's Yiddish for jaunty?

Enjoy your June.
