As the latest offering in its annual summer Art and Literature Series, the Ann Korologos Gallery is hosting a talk and book signing with author Walter Isaacson on Monday, July 20, from 5-7pm. Copies of his latest book The Innovators will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served. RSVP to this event on Facebook
Isaacson’s book, The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution (Simon and Schuster) is a revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is a history of the digital revolution and a guide to how innovation really happens. Isaacson explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Ada Lovelace, Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It’s also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative. For an era that seeks to foster innovation, creativity, and teamwork, The Innovators shows how they happen.
“We are honored to have Walter be a part of our ongoing Art and Literature series at the gallery,” says gallery owner Ann Korologos. “His observations on creativity and innovation are timeless. He so intimately illuminates key innovators in computer science and illustrates how collaboration and risk was the key to their success.”
