Join us for our 7th 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 Greg will speak on the Fermi Paradox. Are we alone in the universe? If the conditions for life as we know it are abundant in our galaxy, why haven't we already encountered alien civilizations?
