SciFly NYC // 103 // Stuffed Full of Specualation

Weekly Events 11/25 - 12/1

Hey SciFly Readers!

It's a pretty light week in NYC in terms of events, in light of the upcoming holiday. Also getting ready on my end to host Thanksgiving and two friends from the UK for the next week, so going to keep this super short.

Just got back from a great trip in New Orleans where I presented a workshop on Designing for a Post-gender future at the Teach for America Brave Summit. Had a wonderful time presenting and doing the research (as I outlined in the last newsletter). Sometimes public speaking can be one of the best ways to quickly learn about a new topic or expand your own knowledge into intersecting fields.

If you are interested in learning more about the presentation, I save some copies online as well as my full notes document (a lot of summarizing articles and copy/pasting things I liked) in a Google Drive folder that you can check out here.

Have a wonderful holiday week, however you are celebrating, and I'll see you after the break!

Read on for this week's great speculative events!
