Moderator. Co-founder @ Good People Dinners

For the last 20 years, I've built companies and communities in the Bay Area, bringing people together around meaningful conversations about art, technology, religion, politics and philosophy. I've started a variety of businesses and served on the boards of several organizations.

In 2012 I founded Good People Dinners, a Bay Area community that fosters substantive discussions, usually over food and drink. These dinners, corporate salons, overnights and retreats bring together professional chefs and speakers on a wide range of topics. GP Dinners has produced over 250 events and counting.

In the fall of 2020, with partner Karin Johnson, we purchased a former summer camp in the mountains near Yosemite National Park. Camp Earnest's 21 acres include a rental house, several cabins, two three season bell tents, dining lodge, bathhouse (Finnish sauna and cedar hot tub coming!), a small outdoor amphitheater, a year round creek and meadow and a meditation and movement hall.

SUMMARY

Web3 is getting a lot of attention. In fact, Collins Dictionary’s word of the year for 2021 was “NFT.” In tech circles, news about the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Beeple’s NFT sale made the headlines.

There’s also a lot of confusion about web3. For instance, do NFTs simply represent ownership of a digital asset or is there more to it than that? Also, what do blockchain, smart contracts and NFTs mean to your business?

In this event from Refresh Miami and Lohika, a panel of entrepreneurs and investors will explain what Web3 is. Next, they’ll discuss related business opportunities in the present and future.

This event is produced in conjunction with Refresh Miami.
