Business Book of the Year? Maybe. Public Talk Next Week? Definitely.

Yesterday we got the good news that The Second Machine Age had been shortlisted for the FT and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award. Erik and I are floored and very flattered, and looking forward to the award dinner in London in November. I’m pretty sure we’ll watch Thomas Piketty another author hoist the trophy, but it’ll be great fun to attend.

In a nice coincidence, next week Erik and I are also giving our first joint public talk about the book since the initial book tour. It’s in Harvard’s gorgeous Sanders Theater on Wednesday October 1 at 4 pm. The event is sponsored by Harvard’s Institute for Learning in Retirement, and is free and open to the public. Please get a ticket in advance by stopping by HILR or the Harvard box office.

If you’re in the Boston area and interested at all please do come and let us know what questions you have about technological progress and how it’s shaping our businesses, economies, and societies. We hope to see you there…
