Description

Project Hieroglyph, founded by New York Times bestseller Neal Stephenson, is a group of experts and authors that aim to rekindle humanity's grand ambitions for the future through the power of storytelling. In his 2011 article "Innovation Starvation," Stephenson argued that we — the society whose scientists and engineers witnessed the airplane, the automobile, nuclear energy, the computer, and space exploration — must reignite our ambitions to think boldly and Do Big Stuff. Join us for an evening uniting leading thinkers, writers and visionaries to offer alternatives to the gloomy dystopian images that pervade our culture. We'll discuss topics ranging from architecture and engineering to education, sustainability and neuroscience and share stories and visions of better futures we could build today.
