SAVE THE DATE: Campaign event with Zoltan Istvan - March 11

Hi everyone,

I have some exciting news. I have received confirmation from *Zoltan
Istvan*, another *Libertarian candidate for Governor*, that he will come
and speak to us on *March 11* in the evening. I will post an event on
Meetup soon when I have a spot confirmed. Please keep your calendar open
for next Sunday evening!
We are even expecting some media coverage for the event (!!). More
details on that to follow...
Some background on Zoltan:

With his popular US Presidential run as a science candidate,
bestselling book *The Transhumanist Wager*, and speeches at
institutions like the World Bank and World Economic Forum, Zoltan
Istvan has helped transform transhumanism into a thriving worldwide
phenomenon. He is often cited as the global leader[1] of the radical
science movement. A humanitarian activist and former journalist for
National Geographic, Zoltan has been compared in major media to a
young Al Gore and described as a modern-day Ayn Rand.

Born in California, Zoltan is an Ivy-league educated man yearning to
use science, technology, and reason to dramatically remake humanity.
Over the last few years, Zoltan has consulted for the US Navy as a
futurist, interviewed to be Libertarian Gary Johnson’s Vice President,
appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience (and dozens of other shows), and
gave many speeches, including at Microsoft, the Global Leaders Forum,
Congreso Futuro, and the *Financial *[2]*Times*[3] Camp Alphaville
(opening Keynote). Zoltan was the only presidential candidate to be
interviewed by underground mega- group Anonymous. His award-winning
2013 novel *The Transhumanist Wager* was a #1 bestseller in Philosophy
and also a top 5 Amazon book. It’s been compared in reviews to Ayn
Rand’s work over 1000 times. It’s being taught in various colleges and
high schools around the world as a warning and inspiration about the
future. Coming out in 2018 is a feature documentary three years in the
making called *Immortality or Bust, *which cover*s* his historic bus
tour across America on the Immortality Bus[4]. Zoltan is the founder
of the Transhumanist Party, the author the Transhumanist Bill of
Rights, and a frequently interviewed expert on AI and genetic editing.
Before becoming a futurist, he was a journalist for the National
Geographic Channel (often an on-camera reporter) and *The New York
Times Syndicate*. Zoltan has traveled to over 100 countries, and has a
degree in Philosophy and Religion from Columbia University. He
frequently writes articles for *Newsweek, Vice, Wired, HuffPost,
TechCrunch*, and other major media. He is currently a libertarian

[5]candidate[6] for California Governor 2018.

This isn't a lot of time, and I apologize for the short notice, but I
am working on finding a spot for us-- I think I have something that
will work, but if anyone has venue suggestions that would be more
than welcome (a restaurant private dining room or meeting room would
be ideal).
Thanks and I hope to see you there,

Hi Nick. Thanks for organizing this. Count me in.

Thanks!
Aubrey

If possible, please make it early afternoon maybe 1PM. I have family events after 3PM. It is Sunday.

Mike

All,

I'm happy to announce that all the details are now confirmed for this
event. We will host Zoltan Istvan, Libertarian for Governor, at Stock in
Trade, a restaurant/bar near the Marina. Find the full details of the
event on Eventbrite:https://www.eventbrite.com/e/zoltan-istvan-for-ca-governor-tickets-43795397212
Please reserve your ticket on Eventbrite so we can keep track of how
many people will be attending! I will post on Meetup as well soon to
maximize exposure. Please share with your friends! We will have a
private room in the back, and will provide some food. You can also order
a full meal and drinks at the bar. They have been very accommodating of
my late plans, so we would do well to support them!
As I mention in the post, there will be some major media coverage there
as well... a great chance to get some national attention for the San
Francisco LP. :slight_smile:
Thanks and hope to see you there!
Nick

(P.S.: Mike, I'm sorry-- Zoltan is not available until the afternoon!)

If possible, please make it early afternoon maybe 1PM. I have family
