On the same day, Vladimir Kagen will be the first in a series of lectures to be presented at the World Market Center. This lecture series is not open to the public, but it is open to attendees and people in the trades. If you fall into one of those categories, I’m jealous.  

Of course there’s plenty more on Kagen if you google him, but here’s some of the links I found most interesting and informative when I did it.
