Launch for “Lab Rats”? by Journalist Dan Lyons

17th January, TusPark.


We can’t wait to see you.

? Next Event: Launch for “Lab Rats”by Journalist Dan Lyons

Join us from 5.30pm on Thursday, 17 January for the Newcastle launch of Dan Lyons’ new book Lab Rats.

Dan Lyons was formerly a co-producer and writer for the HBO series “Silicon Valley”. He was technology editor at Newsweek and Forbes magazines and the creator of the groundbreaking viral blog “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs” (aka “The Fake Steve Jobs”).

Dan’s previous book, Disrupted, was an international bestseller taking a hysterical and critical look at life inside a well-funded technology startup.

His newest book, Lab Rats, looks more widely at how Silicon Valley’s culture and business practices are not always the worker’s paradise hyped up in the media. It promises to be another incisive (and hysterical) look behind the scenes of the tech industry and how we might be able to change things for the better.

Dan will be joined in conversation by Herb Kim, the Founder of Thinking Digital.

Dan will be available to sign copies of his new book at the event close.

This is a free event with light refreshments provided.

With thanks to our Friends at TusPark Newcastle Eagle Labs
