Author Talk: Philip Auerswald

Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 7 p.m.

Join author Philip Auerswald for his author talk on The Code Economy: A 40,000 Year History.

In a sweeping narrative that takes readers from the invention of the alphabet to the advent of the Blockchain, Philip Auerswald argues that the advance of code is the key driver of human history. Over the span of centuries, each major stage in the advance of code has brought a shift in the structure of society that has challenged human beings to reinvent not only how we work but who we are.
