Join ITP Alumnus Josh Klein (’07) as he discusses his new book, “Hacking Work”.

Big companies are badly broken – strangled by bureaucracy, frozen in antiquated processes, and stagnant in the midst of rapidly changing markets. That’s good news, for in the midst of all the crap is immense opportunity for fresh thinking to produce massive innovations. Hacking Work documents how to get promoted for breaking the rules, get a raise for disagreeing with your boss, and get hired for pointing out problems. Join Josh and learn about how to turn your inner hacker into your greatest asset.

Bio:

Josh has practiced and was trained, both formally and informally, in hacking – social systems, computer networks, institutions, consumer hardware, animal behavior, and, most recently, the publishing industry. When he’s not taking things apart or putting them back together again he speaks, writes, and consults on new and emerging technologies that improve people’s lives – and has tremendous fun doing it.
