We hope everyone had a great long weekend! The week might have just started but it’s already Wednesday and time for UP Alumni In The News!
This past week:
UP 10 speaker and New York Times tech critic David Pogue reexamined previous advice to never unsubscribe from spam emails.
September marks the month when Pogue’s fellow UP 10 speaker and technology writer Kevin Kelly releases the paperback version of his book What Technology Wants many of you may have read it as all of last year’s UP attendees got copies in their gift bags. Kelly has some surprising thoughts on the advantages of buying the book versus reading it on an ereader and highlights some unconventional interviews he’s done lately.
UP 09 speaker Michio Kaku was featured in the latest edition of “Symphony of Science” on CBS News. This series mixes some of society’s greatest current scientific minds including Kaku and Stephen Hawking with the entertaining world of viral internet videos.
