Treehouse Talks :: February 10, 2012

The Treehouse Talks are back to their usual schedule! From 6:30-8:15 pm, Friday February 10, 2012, join us at the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St).

How can we recover from having used not one but two webcams at the last set of Treehouse Talks? With chocolate. What else? According to John Godfrey, one of February’s Treehouse speakers, “chocolate is always good even if completely unrelated to my presentation”.

Come for the chocolate, stay for the Talks. Jody Culham, a psychologist, will use audience participation to demonstrate the capabilities of various modules in your brain: it is an incredible feat for the brain to work as one single unit. John Godfrey, a former MP, will argue that “the whole concept of Global Citizenship is a crock”. And science-fiction writer Karl Schroeder will use speed-prophecy to envision scenarios for the future of Toronto.

  • JODY CULHAM: “How many brains do you have?”
  • JOHN GODFREY: “Is Global Citizenship possible”
  • KARL SCHROEDER: “Tomorrow’s Toronto: A Foresight Exercise on the Future of our City”


As always, they are free, and we look forward to seeing you there. Conversations will continue after the show (8:15pm) just down the street at The Pilot in Yorkville.

Welcome to the Treehouse!
