Haven’t had much to say in this space lately, since the book is out and promotion has slowed a bit. I have to say, for the most part feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. I’m particularly gratified by the kind words of one reader, who assured me that I “absolutely nailed what it’s like for parents of kids with disabilities.”

I have a few upcoming appearances for the remainder of 2013. First, I’m making a return visit to Toronto to take part in DEEP 2013 conference at the Ontario College of Art and Design. The objective of the summit is to “engage in substantive in-depth discussion about implementation strategies for digital inclusion of persons with disabilities among decision makers.” I’m honored to have been asked to participate.

Immediately following that, I’m off to Chicago—one of my favorite cities—to speak at World Future 2013 for the World Future Society. There I’ll be discussing how people with disabilities are encouraging systemic innovation in today’s healthcare space, operating as predictors for the quantified self in an increasingly device-centric landscape.

Finally, I’ll be making at least one appearance in Washington DC later as we get closer to autumn.

I’ll have books available at all of these sessions. In fact, immediately following my World Future session I’ll be sitting at the “author’s table” signing copies. Looking forward to seeing folks there!
