Maria Popova’s wildly popular blog Brainpickings, which started as a weekly e-mail to seven friends, now has fans like William Gibson, Drew Carey, Mia Farrow and Biz Stone, and is included in the Library of Congress permanent web archive. A recent sampling includes Sylvia Bornstein on Pablo Neruda, 19th century illustrations of owls and ospreys, and Mark Rothko on beauty, friendship and art. Popova, a self-proclaimed “curious mind at large”, has written for Wired UK, Atlantic, New York Times, and Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab, and is an MIT Futures of Entertainment Fellow. She appears in conversation with Alexis Madrigal, Fusion's Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, former senior editor at the Atlantic and staff writer at Wired, and author of Powering the Dream.

In addition to Ms Popova’s discussion, alumni and guests will meet in the “Green Room” for a reception before the show.
