Technology writer and philosopher Clive Thompson will speak on Sept. 19 for the Martha Jean Lemon Distinguished Speaker Series. The presentation is free and open to the public.
Thompson is a contributing writer for «The New York Times Magazine» and a columnist for «Wired». He writes about how technology affects everyday life, “from the linguistic style of emoji to the culture of screenshots.”
Thompson wrote the book “Smarter Than You Think” about the ways technology and the Internet age have impacted society. He has presented at the South by Southwest festival on “The Power of Public Thinking.”
The Martha Jean Lemon Distinguished Speakers Series was established by Dr. Lynette Lemon Wert and Larry H. Lemon on behalf of the Lemon family of Oklahoma City and in honor of their sister, Martha Jean Lemon, who graduated from Oklahoma City University in 1968 with a degree in history and worked as an independent comparative religion scholar. The series features speakers from a wide array of backgrounds and fields of expertise.
