To Do Thursday: Randi Zuckerberg in Conversation with Arianna Huffington

ZUCKERBERG_DotComp_Cover_1_1024x1024When Randi Zuckerberg left the company her brother, Mark, started at Harvard, she was riding high on the success of an Emmy nomination for coordinating Facebook’s 2010 midterm election coverage. She went on to executive-produce Start-Ups: Silicon Valley for Bravo and start a weekly newsletter, Dot Complicated, that’s as much about how to put limits on technology use as it is about finding better ways of living via apps and other innovations. Surely the woman who told a social media panel, “I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away,” and whose new children’s book, Dot, urges kids to “look up from the screen,” will have much to discuss with another woman whose last name has become synonymous with a certain segment of the Internet, Arianna Huffington, at tonight’s discussion and book signing for Ms. Zuckerberg’s Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives, which she promises “isn’t for the techies—it’s for you.” Ask her what that means tonight. This event is free, but purchasing a copy of the book will get you priority seating.
