Once a month, my friend and superstar journalist Charlie Jane Anders hosts a spoken word variety show called Writers With Drinks at a bar called The Makeout Room in the Mission district of San Francisco. She invited me to read last weekend, so I did. I read excerpts from my profile of the Dalai Lama’s brother, and I also read the Wired.com article about the Tokyo pick-up school for geeks. I might post my audio clips here later, but for now, I wanted to share the lovely introduction that Charlie Jane wrote before she brought me on stage. Enjoy!
