Thu., Nov. 21, 2013, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Location: The Commons, Spooner Hall

Internet pioneer Nicco Mele shows how our ability to connect instantly, constantly, and globally is altering the power of business, politics, culture, education and more with a breathtaking speed that is disrupting our lives in revolutionary ways. Many of these changes are for the good. However, Nicco argues that the new realities of technology come at a high price. Nicco's keynote is both alarming and hopeful – thought provoking and passionately argued – and will change the way you use technology forever.

Since his early days as one of Esquire Magazine's "Best and Brightest" in America, Nicco has been a sought-after innovator, media commentator, and speaker. He serves on a number of private and non-profit boards, including the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard and Breakthrough.tv. Nicco is also co-founder of the Massachusetts Poetry Festival.
