harvard lecture + directions for MIT lecture tonight

The Harvard lecture went really well. We talked about truth in photography -- what does that mean? is there such a thing? how media is biased and how that's unavoidable, how you go about trying to neutralize it as much as possible? all this in the context of photographing Armed America, with slides from the book and slides that didn't make it into the book. Everyone was engaged and seemed to have a great time.

Story of the lecture

The lecture went like this:

Professor: "kyle cassidy is blah blah blah, book, blah blah, photographer, blah blah. please welcome him."

Audience: (polite applause)

Kyle: "important serious stuff, important serious stuff, important serious stuff, photography, doccumenting culture, media and reporters, important serious stuff, bias in the media, important serious stuff. Thank you very much.

Audience: (thunderous applause)

Professor: "Are there any questions for Kyle?"

Audience member: "Yes, I'd like to know if you think that momcat really hates you."

I do love this life.

Afterwards a few of us went out to continue the conversation and had a swell time

Tonight's lecture at MIT is listed as Standing Room Only, which means there is no more conventional seating in the room. They tell me it may be possible to bring in extra chairs if you'd like to chance it or sit on the floor. When are you going to get another opportunity to meet me?

The directions are:

Mass. Institute of Technology

BLDG 1, ROOM 132
7:00 pm

FIRST BLDG ON THE RIGHT AFTER CROSSING THE MASS AVE. BRIDGE INTO CAMBRIDGE, OR THE LAST BUILDING ON THE LEFT BEFORE CROSSING THE MASS AVE BRIDGE INTO BOSTON. PRIORITY SEATING TO THOSE WITH RESERVATIONS.
