Speaker: Rob Goodman
Join Fourth Universalist member Rob Goodman for a discussion of his book A Mind at Play: How Claude Shannon Invented the Information Age. Shannon was the intellectual architect of information theory, and his insights stand behind every computer built, email sent, video streamed, and webpage loaded. He was also a tinkerer whose creations included juggling robots, a fleet of customized unicycles, and a flame-throwing trumpet. We’ll discuss the life of this singular innovator and his secrets of creativity.
