I was invited to do a brief reading and Q&A on Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff at South By Southwest Interactive conference this year. (Very brief: I knew I only had 20 minutes and so I hurried at the beginning to be sure we’d have time for lots of questions. As it turned out more time had been allowed, so we were able to switch to a more comfortable pace and have a great conversation.) Thanks to everyone for a great time during the presentation and at the book signing afterward!
Here’s the description from the program:
