Tuesday’s (5/8) Berkman lunch features James Gleick and his book The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood. RSVP by noon Monday to attend in person. Otherwise, tune in virtually or check out the archive after the talk.
James Gleick is a native New Yorker and a graduate of Harvard and the author of a half-dozen books on science, technology, and culture. His latest bestseller, translated into 20 languages, is The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood, which the NY Times called “ambitious, illuminating, and sexily theoretical.” Whatever they meant by that. They also said “Don’t make the mistake of reading it quickly.”
