I stopped by Renee Blodgett‘s house last night for an "untech" dinner — no talk of technology allowed. Similar to the Junto, but way more strict! It was a fun couple hours. Good chats with Auren Hoffman, Josh Weinberg, and Mick Malisic, among others. We talked about religion, neoconservatism, nature vs. nurture, politics, education, globalization, urbanization and cities, and many other provocative issues! It’s always interesting to have these discussions, but you have to be careful: too much time talking about important topics at a cocktail hour level, and one becomes reliant on sound bites while deep, critical analysis goes by the wayside.
Here’s a photo of me at Renee’s.
