Our virtual launch event at Green Apple Books in San Francisco was held on September 3 at 6:00 pm PDT. I was in conversation with my friend John Markoff, a former New York Times tech reporter who is also an author and now a research affiliate at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford. John just happens to be a good friend of my husband’s, and was the best man at our wedding!
