Please join us on Wednesday, November 2nd at 7pm a NestED talk by Jon Gertner, a writer and editor-at-large at Fast Company Magazine. He is also the author of The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation (2013), the first full portrait of the legendary lab that served as an incubator for scientific innovation from the 1920s through the 1980s.
A frequent contributor to The New York Times Magazine and a range of other publications, Gertner writes about climate change, technology, and innovation, exploring relationships between science, history, economics, and social progress. This year, he is a fellow at the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, where he is working on a book about the past, present, and future of Greenland. A graduate of Cornell, Jon lives with his wife and two children in Maplewood, NJ.
