Don’t Go Back to School party/teach-in on Sept 12

It’s Don’t Go Back to School Season. I’m throwing a party and you are all invited.

Don’t Go Back to School party & teach-in
Thursday September 12, 7-9pm
180 Varick St. Suite 1610

This is going to be an amazing night of celebrating, teaching, and learning. One of the biggest lessons I discovered in researching and writing Don’t Go Back to School is that learning together is the way people learn and create. I’m on a mission to make that better known and more possible, and this party is all about doing that.

I’m gathering some of the smartest people I know to talk about getting started learning things like creative writing, coding, cooking, loving art, and graphic design. Plus there will be beer and snacks. Come learn with us and stand up for independent learning!

Clay Shirky on being an autodidact (there’s a catch)
Nick Gray (Museum Hack/Hack the Met) on art appreciation
Keira Alexandra on graphic design
Jacqui Maher (New York Times) on learning to code
Kristen Taylor (Saucy Magazine, Al Jazeera Fault Lines) on cooking
Peter Richardson on learning new things really fast
Madhu Kaza on creative writing

To make the night even more special, I’ve recruited the team from Make It Happen to be on site doing ritual consultations that lead to commitments to learn and make things happen in your life. It’s a really special experience and I’m so excited to give it to you.

I really hope you can come, and I’d love to meet you, so please make sure you introduce yourself!

    Today, I received my email copy of New Learning Times and read your interview with great interest. It was a thrill to learn of your new book and I plan to read it very soon. In visiting your twitter homepage, I learned that one of your followers is Lisa Nielsen, a good friend of mine…I hope you have gotten the chance to meet and talk with her.

    When I got down to the part in the interview that mentioned the Don’t Go Back to School party on Sept. 12, I said to myself, “Today is Sept. 25, that Sept. 12 date has to be a misprint.” Alas, it wasn’t and I missed what certainly must have been a great event.

    So, I want to make sure that doesn’t happen again and have subscribed to your mailing list and your twitter feed.

    You and I are thinking about lots of similar things. It would be a real pleasure at some point to sit down and talk for awhile. Hope that can happen.

    The density of bars and clubs on 6th Street is only
    matched by famous Bourbon Street in New Orleans (but without the constant
    fowl smell). baby rattle snake that bit Lilian Aguilar’s twelve year old son as he was sleeping.
    These professional agencies will ensure that they strictly adhere
    to the rules and regulations.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix thiis issue?
