Radical Women's New Year
If you spent the year leaning to the feminist left, PO'd that the legislature failed to pass the Reproductive Parity Act, and celebrating that Kshama Sawant won a seat at City Hall, you can ring in a radical 2014 with your sisters-in-arms at this party.
Radical Women Seattle is hosting its annual New Year's party with dancing, a sketch of the year in review, and party favors.
Radical Women New Year's Eve Party, Tues, December 31, 8:30pm, New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S., $5 door donation

Your Online Reputation
Did you really think it was a secret that you spent an hour looking at cat videos on YouTube? Ever wonder if your eBay seller rate really matters that much? It turns out that your online activity is monitored, tracked, and affects everything from the ads you see on Facebook to how companies decide what you're worth—and Joshua Klein thinks you can use this to your advantage.
Hacker, TEDtalker, and writer, Klein will be at Town Hall discussing his new book, Reputation Economics: Why Who You Know is Worth More Than What You Have, and his ideas on connectivity and online reputations as the new currency.
Joshua Klein: Reputation and Your Online Footprint, Thu, January 9, 7:30–9:30pm, Downstairs at Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, $5
