An Evening with Robert Reich
This SFU Public Square event was part of their 2013 Community Summit “Charting BC’s Economic Future”. It was live web cast . I would hope that it will be available as a recording on line but I can not find any commitment to that. I am linking to the Public Square site in the hopes that you will be able to find your way to it eventually but I will come back and check.
The Orpheum Theatre was pretty well filled, and according to the organizers it became a trending event on twitter the evening. I have made a storify using the hashtag #sfups. His theme was inequality and is tied in to his new movie which is not yet available here. But there is, of course, a web site.
UPDATE Very much to my surprise the entire text of his speech is now on the Georgia Straight.
He is a very engaging and entertaining speaker. The format chosen was that there were lots of introductions and plugging of sponsors, a short address and then a very easy interview with Anna Maria Tremonti lobbing very soft questions and even some pre-recorded questions from a carefully chosen and quite unrepresentative sample of people. But all good stuff and well worth your time, once the webcast is available.
What really surprised me was the number of people who left before the end of the event. I do hope that those people did not get the free bar of chocolate.
