Talks

I have been speaking in public a lot for the past 20 years. I’ve been interviewed a lot on radio and for the internet, usually with regard to my books or Critical Mass, and I’ve given a great number of public lectures on the same in college classrooms, at bookstores, and in various other venues. I have also been hosting a series of Shaping San Francisco Public Talks since 2006, where I act primarily as moderator, but sometimes I’m a presenter too. Those Talks are mostly available as downloadable mp3 and podcasts by going here.
