This Week’s Affairs from Wakefield

Events for October 15-22

Derek Jeter’s ankle is broken, the days are getting shorter, and we’ve still got another two presidential debates to sit through. Thankfully this week’s full calendar of tech events should help fight off any sense of foreboding. We’ve got a behind the scenes look at Google’s Street View, a robotics speaker series, and a whole lot more. Check ’em out.

October 16: EdTech Titans of Industry, 6pm

Keep in mind that’s Ed as in education, not Ed Hardy or anything. This talk will feature Jose Ferreira, CEO of Knewton, Laurie Racine, the founder of Startl, among others. Get schooled and score tickets here.
