Dave Eggers vs. Reality Round Up

The fireworks flew on Wednesday, November 2, when our second One Book speaker, Waldo Jaquith, discussed The Circle and its approach to online privacy and transparency. His conclusion? Dave Eggers' dystopia is entertaining, but it's also one we don't need to fear. Covering everything from the reasons why people troll to the consequences of forced transparency to why you should never, ever read the comments, Jaquith's talk was fun and enlightening.

Weren't able to make it? Interested in listening to the talk again? You can view the recording on PVCC's YouTube channel here.

The One Book Program would like to extend a warm thank you to Mr. Jaquith for his talk!
