Summer book recommendation.

7 books Bill Gates recommends you read this summer

In true fashion, there are some brainier books that will make you think, including On Immunity and Should We Eat Meat?, but also some more fun ones, like Hyperbole and a Half. “You will rip through it in three hours, tops,” writes Gates. “But you’ll wish it went on longer, because it’s funny and smart as hell. I must have interrupted Melinda a dozen times to read to her passages that made me laugh out loud.”

Here's a great video with +Barry Slaughter Olsen about #interpreting  and #technology  

Interpreting is at a crossroads. Multilingual interaction is at an all-time high, yet interpreters are nervous about their future. New technologies and new ways of working are changing traditional definitions of what interpreting is and where it is performed. Will new technologies mean a dumbing down of the profession and an undermining of working conditions or will they empower interpreters to offer their services in new ways and with greater added value? The answer to that question will depend largely on how individual interpreters respond to the accelerating pace of digital disruption and innovation that is affecting every aspect of modern society. More importantly, how do you adapt and thrive in this new environment? Join professor and veteran conference interpreter Barry Slaughter Olsen as he shares his insights on new technologies in interpreting and how you can thrive in this new reality.
