New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson

March 22, 2017 at 6:30 PM

Science Fiction and The Future at Postlight

Join Postlight as we discuss Kim Stanley Robinson’s vision of New York City in 2140: like Venice on speed. The city is literally underwater (well, south of midtown). Commuters travel by boat. But it’s still NYC, complete with street urchins, big finance, and beat cops.

We host welcoming and inclusive events

That means serving a variety of tasty drinks (not just alcohol!), choosing food that satisfies common dietary restrictions, and creating a safe space for everyone. Our event code of conduct is easy to read, and acts as the standard that we hold ourselves and our guests to.

Postlight Sessions attendees Postlight Sessions attendees

Our sessions tend to cover topics around one of our three disciplines: product design, engineering, or product management. We’ve developed a relaxed interview style that puts the work on us instead of the guest. It keeps the evening focused and fun for everyone.

Postlight's space

We make our space available to other tech organizations who are doing stuff we support. We’ve hosted Black Girls Code, Girl Develop It, and others. We’d love to consider hosting your organization too. Let us know if we can help.
