Back in January, I hosted Mick Ebeling at Google LA for an Authors@Google talk.
Mick is an award-winning film/television/commercial producer, philanthropist, idea-generator, and author. He discussed the maker movement and his new book Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done. It was inspirational and really made me wonder how I too can make a similar big impact.
I'm a huge fan of Daniel Suarez's sci fi (see all my prior posts), so it was a real treat to be able to host him for an Authors at Google event when his new book INFLUX launched. We got to talk about lots of fun topics including quantum computation, antigravity, self-driving cars, and the process of researching and writing science fiction. I'm excited to keep up with Daniel and see what he works on next.
I realized I never posted the videos of the Authors at Google talks I've helped set up so far. I have another very exciting one coming up later this month, so I wanted to first post the ones I've done so far.
Below is the first talk I ever set up. I had the pleasure of hosting Donnie Eichar, author of Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. We talked about science, hiking, crazy trips to Russia, and various spooky theories of how the Dyatlov Pass mystery could be solved.
