And … this post is already out of date, as I’ve added some additional items to the Current Activities sidebar.
The left-hand sidebar on Disquiet.com lists things that are coming up, and as there have been some interesting updates, I wanted to bring attention to them in a proper post. The highlight is a trio of books that contain material on the Disquiet Junto:
Upcoming • March 22, 2019: I’m giving a talk at the Algorithmic Art Assembly, two days of events in San Francisco: aaassembly.org. • May 7, 2019: This day sees the release of Rob Walker’s book The Art of Noticing: 131 Ways to Spark Creativity, Find Inspiration, and Discover Joy in the Everyday (Knopf), which has entries about the Disquiet Junto. • May 22, 2019: Final day of the semester of the 15-week “Sounds of Brands” course I teach once a year at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. • December 13, 2019: This day marks the 23rd anniversary of Disquiet.com. • January 7, 2020: This day marks the 8th anniversary of the Disquiet Junto.
