Imagine if you could meet and talk with Vannevar Bush, author of “As We May Think,” the article you read last week! Well, you can’t, because he’s dead, but you CAN meet another of our authors and dreamers whose work you will be reading this semester: Alan Kay.
This Friday, June 20, our class has the rare opportunity to speak with Alan Kay via Google Hangout. We have been trying to arrange this meeting for a long time, but we didn’t find out until a few days ago that this Friday is the only time he can meet. We debated rearranging the readings so that you would read his article this week, but that would mess up the whole flow of the course.
Thus, please read the following preparatory materials about Alan Kay in order to prepare for the Google Hangout on Friday.
As always, we hope you can attend the hangout live so you can participate by posting questions, but if you can’t, that’s okay–you can watch the recording later.
