Sarah Lacy UGBT Comes to Memphis
August 18, 2008
Sarah Lacy, is bringing her User Generated Book Tour (UGBT) to Memphis just a month from now! Sarah has gained notoriety with dizzying velocity over her career, most recently, as a columnist for Business Week, host of Yahoo TechTicker, and a closely followed blogger.
She has become one of the most polarizing figures in the world of Web 2.0 with many people expressing a “love her or hate her” attitude. Sarah’s proponents often appreciate her deeply personal inside knowledge of many of today’s seemingly inaccessible business giants. However, many are quick to cite what is perhaps one of the most infamous public interviews of the last several years, between Lacy and Facebook mastermind, Mark Zuckerberg at last year’s SXSW conference, which spawned a great deal of online debate and criticism.
Her latest tour is to promote her new book Once You’re Lucky, Twice You’re Good: The Rebirth of Silicon Valley and the Rise of Web 2.0. At tour stops so far, Lacy has been discussing the ideas in her book, doing Q&A sessions with bloggers and columnists, and keeping news from the whole event posted on her blog.
Her stop on the Memphis leg of her tour will be at Emerge Memphis on Sept. 18 at 5:00 pm. The event is sponsored by Launch Memphis, a group of Memphis businesses and individuals devoted to promoting entrepreneurship in the greater Memphis area. Be there, log on, and get ready to blog!
