Our latest Futurecast events have been particularly memorable. Last month, I hosted Ben Jealous, the former CEO of the NAACP, for a really stimulating conversation about diversity in tech (video highlights to come). And this coming Thursday evening in Palo Alto, I'm interviewing David Hornik, General Partner at August Capital, to get one of Silicon Valley's smartest venture capitalist's take on all the hottest tech trends - from artificial intelligence and virtual reality to drones and (even) hoverboards. We've still got a couple of tickets available, so please RSVP if you are free this coming Thursday (October 29th) evening in Palo Alto.
This will be the last Futurecast of 2015, but lots more to come in 2016 including an inaugeral one in Las Vegas on January 4th, just before CES. But my 2015 is far from finished. October was pretty insane with speeches in Stockholm, New York City, Altanta, Dusseldorf, London, Tel Aviv, Singapore and Prague. And the first half of November is going to be pretty hectic too, with events in Amsterdam, Milan and Berlin. I'm particularly looking forward to the Berlin event on November 12th, where I'll be debating MIT's Sandy Pentland about the ups and downs of big data. If I beat him, I hope he'll shave off his beard.
Really hope to see you at the Foundry in Palo Alto on Thursday evening.
