Join us for our 6th dinner co-sponsored by our friends at Mozilla.
Elle and Matt will host us at the HERE Collective in the Mission. Mozilla has been kind enough to subsidize costs, making these gatherings more affordable ($50pp).
Mozilla is the maker of the Firefox web browser and a not-for-profit organization that advocates for Internet Health. They build products, technologies and programs that give people control of their online lives, supporting the Internet as a global public resource that is open and accessible to all. They sponsor the Good People dinners as a place for open discussion and community building where anyone can feel included and heard. In the interest of full disclosure, if you purchase a spot at this dinner, your contact details will also be shared with Mozilla.
Expect cocktails at 6:00 and our speaker around 6:45 with a family style feast introduced around 7:00, prepared by our professional chef. Wines will be thoughtfully paired with the menu.
ATTIRE: Attire is relaxed and informal.
About GOOD PEOPLE: Most of the enjoyment we gain from an experience has more to do with who we're with than what we're doing. Good People is about inspiration, community and friendships. Who are good people? They’re our best selves, when we rise above tribalism and explore big ideas.
Our friend Dan Levitin is Dean of Social Sciences at the Minerva Project, a professor at McGill University and an authority on the intersection between music and neuroscience. His most recent book is A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age.
Have you ever thought something was true only to find out later that there is no evidence for it? What was your reaction and how can we prevent that from happening? (Think “fake news”).
Dan will speak specifically about the phenomenon of pseudo-experts, people who pontificate about things that they don’t know much about and how this affects our society. How do we distinguish truth from fiction? How do we make more informed and responsible decisions when our society is drowning in misinformation?
