Humans of the world, unite!

Pre-eminent digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff is coming to City College on March 19th for our first @BIC Lecture of the semester to  celebrate his latest publication and pro-people manifesto, Team Human. Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Team Human proclaims that when we work together, we realize greater happiness, productivity, and peace.

Walter Isaacson calls Team Human “a provocative, exciting, and important rallying cry to reassert our human spirit of community and teamwork.” The Wall Street Journal describes it as “hopeful suggestions for mending the fabric of society frayed by a ‘state of perpetual distraction.’”

Need a group hug? Come join the conversation in this very human forum. Afterwards, books will be sold and signed (in person, one-on-one, human-to-human) by the author, Douglas Rushkoff.

RSVP here.
