SciFri Book Club Meet-Up

Science Friday
The Science Friday Book Club is back! This time around, we’re traveling back to the late 1970s, to the early days of the computer revolution, with Tracy Kidder's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Soul of a New Machine.
Join Ira and Tracy at Google’s New York City headquarters for light refreshments and an engaging conversation about one team’s high stakes drive to build and debug a 32-bit minicomputer. Space is limited, so complete the form below to add your name to the list. Pre-registration is required, and we’ll follow up in advance to confirm that your spot has been reserved.
