The Oakland Book Festival takes place later this month, on Sunday, May 22. The information is all here. I’m going to be participating on two panels. The first is called “The New Company Town,” which will “examine the troubling legacy of the new company town and its effect on workers.” The second is called “Working in Silicon Valley,” looking at issues of diversity, worker exploitation, and “skewed distribution of financial rewards.” On the panel will be Brad Stone, Ellen Pao, and Y-Vonne Hutchinson, with moderator Anastasia Edel. Not to be missed.
