9th Ave: Logic Launch Issue 5: Failure

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 7:30pm

This event will be held at our 9th Ave. location.

 

 

Machines malfunction, fall short of our expectations, or behave in weird and unhelpful ways. Software makes demands of us we can’t possibly fulfill. Startups die, and their founders fail up—or down. Venture capitalists lose money, and call it the cost of innovation. A win for some is a loss for others: technical and financial successes breed social and ecological failures.

 

Join Logic to celebrate the West Coast release of our new issue, FAILURE, hosted by Green Apple Books on the Park in SF.

 

There will be readings from the upcoming issue and from our previous release, SCALE. They include:

 

+ Adrian Daub on who cleans up when the rocketship crashes

+ Wendy Liu on the failures of the free software movement

+ Xiaowei Wang with a dispatch from Shenzhen, the Other Bay Area

+ Will Payne on location-based apps and gentrification

+ Kim-Mai Cutler on the history of venture capital
