On Feb 13th, Funny as Tech will explore: Why Is Tech So Lousy with Women?! Special guests for this tech-comedy panel show include Amanda Henning (culture writer at Mashable), Jumana Abu-Ghazaleh (founder & CEO of betwixt.us), & Kimberly Gray (founder & CEO of Uvii).
Funny as Tech is a live panel show & podcast that tackles the thorniest issues in technology. Co-hosted by tech ethicist David Ryan Polgar & comedian Joe Leonardo, Funny as Tech has featured guests including Douglas Rushkoff, Manoush Zomorodi, Chuck Nice, Nir Eyal, Bridget Carey, Baratunde Thurston, CNET's Bridget Carey, Foursquare's Dennis Crowley, & CNN's Laurie Segall.
Join us for this freewheeling panel show where the guests let loose. It is a wonky night out where you can both learn, laugh, & ask questions. There will also be a book giveaway (3 copies) of Douglas Rushkoff's new book, Team Human. This event is being co-produced by the Ethical Tech Meetup.
Those who like their comedy on the nerdy side will find just that in the blend of tech & jokes that this show & podcast provides.-The New York Times
"While shifts in technology now affect all of us, they're usually discussed in the ivory tower or at industry conferences. Like any subject involving niche expertise, future speculation & no clear-cut answers, it's hard to make entertaining. A show like Funny As Tech presents an alternative: an expert who quotes studies from PricewaterhouseCoopers with a comedian who can make it digestible on the fly." -Engadget (Chris Ip)
