Attend the Inaugural Beardsley Lecture on Oct. 6

Michael-Chorostwebedit.gifThe lecture will feature Dr. Michael Chorost. The technology theorist went completely deaf in 2001 and had a computer implanted in his head to regain his hearing. Having the device in his body sparked an idea: how do computers change humans? And how can computers change the way we communicate? What he found is that computers can make communication much more creative.

Hear his experience that prompted two books, including Dr. Chorost's most recent, World Wide Mind.

The lecture is in honor of the late John Beardsley of Twin Cities PR agency Padilla Speer Beardsley. He was a luminary who never quit asking, What's next? He loved to learn, grow and think to the future.

The lecture will be held Thursday, Oct. 6, with a reception from 5:30 p.m. and the lecture starting at 7 p.m., at Cowles Auditorium in the Humphrey Institute.
