  • This event has passed.

Biz Stone, who has been named Nerd of the Year by GQ and one of TIME’s Most Influential People in the World, is the creative, effervescent, funny, charmingly positive, and remarkably savvy co-founder of Twitter.

In Things a Little Bird Told Me: Confessions of a Creative Mind, he shares fascinating, pivotal, and personal stories on the power of creativity and how to harness it. Biz’s early life and unique resume embody the mindset of today’s top innovators. He knows better than anyone that:

  • Opportunity can be manufactured
  • Great work comes from abandoning a linear way of thinking
  • Creativity never runs out
  • Asking questions is free
  • Empathy is core to personal and global success

Reflecting on his path to Google, Twitter and beyond, Biz also provides his insights on ambition, failure, corporate culture, and the value of vulnerability. Most recently, Biz is founder and CEO of his newest venture, Jelly.

In conversation with Megan Garber, a staff writer at The Atlantic. She was formerly an assistant editor at the Nieman Journalism Lab, where she wrote about innovations in the media. Book signing to follow.
