In case you want to hear me babble:
Cybersalon: Matchmaking for Love and Money, Online and Off
Some social interactions can’t be automated–yet, but technologies can
certainly help folks pursue a quicker denouement.
The founders of online and offline career and dating services will
explain how new technology and new social norms are changing the way
people find love and money at the Hillside Club in Berkeley, on
Sunday, September 21 (5:30-9PM).
* Jonathan Abrams, CEO, Friendster
* danah boyd from UC Berkeley
* Julie Paiva, President, Table for Six
* Mark Pincus, CEO, Tribe
* Cynthia Typaldos, Principal, Typaldos Consulting
* Ned Engelke, Managing Director, North America, OIS/SmartFlirts
Note: for anyone who had hoped to go to this talk to heckle Jonathan instead of me, you’ll need to redirect your tomatoes as Jonathan has seemed to have bailed on the panel.
Doors open at 5.30; discussion starts at 7. A $15 donation is
suggested to help fund the Hillside Club and cover food and drink.
Table for Six is offering a door prize: a ticket to one of their
events. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re coming!
5.30 – 9.00 PM
