Want to learn more about the scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs who made Cambridge one of the most innovative cities in the world? Join us on November 5th for a special walking tour of Cambridge’s innovation past, present, and future. This is something that happens just once a year — and sometimes less! (And if you’ve participated in the tour before, this time we have *entirely new* stops and content.)

We’ll start at the historic newsstand that inspired the founders of Microsoft… learn about Admiral Grace Hopper, early computers at Harvard, and the very first bug…why Cambridge became a global hub for biotech… and meet one of the people who helped launch the personal computing revolution, Dan Bricklin. (Both co-founders of Apple, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, have credited the software Bricklin created as a key element of Apple’s early success.)

Your hosts are Bob Krim, historian and co-founder of the Entrepeneur Innovation Center at Framingham State University, and Scott Kirsner, Innovation Economy columnist at the Boston Globe.

*ALL* proceeds will be donated to a worthy nonprofit. And when you register, you get a vote on which one. (Your four choices: The Clubhouse Network, Science Club for Girls, BUILD Boston, or the MassTLC Education Foundation.)

We’ll plan to start promptly at 12:30. The starting point is Out of Town News, immediately above the Harvard Square stop on the Red Line. It’s a walking tour, so come in comfortable clothes and shoes. We’ll wrap up at Harvard Business School by 3:30 PM. You’ll be about a 10-12 minute walk back to the Harvard Square T station.

We hope you can join us.

(We’ll reschedule in the event of pouring rain, but otherwise will run the tour on Nov 5th. Once you buy a ticket, there are no refunds — sorry. But you may transfer it to another person.)
