Two weeks ago at the Getty Museum in LA, I gave a talk at EG, the Entertainment Gathering, hosted by Michael Hawley, formerly of the Media Lab. In addition to my presentation there were some 65 other talks in 48 hours. Each presentation was 18-20 minutes, which I find is the perfect length for something new. It was a marathon learning adventure. I may have been the only one to sit through all 65 talks. Whew! My favorites: Magician Jamy Swiss teaching a magic trick, Ian Dunbar on how to train a puppy, A.J. Jacobs on his year living Biblically.
