Hey! I’m speaking at this. Come! Boing Boing Ingenuity Aug 17-18: Vaudeville for Happy Mutants!

Monday, August 5th, 2013


On August 17-18 in San Francisco, Boing Boing: Ingenuity will bring our site off the screen for the first time, for a two day celebration of cleverness, curiosity, and wonder.

The first day is a marathon hack day while Sunday, August 18, is a mind-bending theatrical experience of presentations, performances, oddities, and wonder taking place at an opulent former Masonic Lodge.

We are thrilled to announce our line-up for Boing Boing: Ingenuity‘s Sunday August 18 program, an experience we’ve come to think of as vaudeville for Happy Mutants:

Trevor Paglen, experimental geographer, author of “The Last Pictures”
