July Meetup with Daniel Sieradski

Unfortunately, this month's tentative speaker canceled last minute and we were unable to find a replacement on such short notice. Therefore, I – Daniel Sieradski, the host and founder of the NYC Jewish Tech Meetup – will be filling in with a presentation I delivered recently at the Judaism 2030 conference entitled, "Jeuromancer: Transhumanism, Bioethics & the Dystopian Jewish Future." The presentation will explore the scientific concept of the Singularity and its implications for the future of Jewish life and learning.

    Truly the best way to describe this meetup is that it was 'mind blowing' - thank you for the thought provoking and informative presentation. Nice group of techies. Too bad the heat keep some away!

    It was a great event, but unfortunately not SOOOOO many people we there. It was high quality - low quantity. Not always bad. Still 4 Stars. I also had to take away a star because of my lost sleep after learning about transhumanism :)

    Dan, unfortunately I'm going to miss this meetup again. I'm in California this time. I have a lot of great things going on at Mitzfunder.org and Jewster.com wish I could be there with the rest of the group to connect with others there.

    Also, for others on the group, I'm looking to hire a Community/Communications manager. If you or someone you know is looking for a social media position in a Jewish startup, or if you just want to hear details please be in touch.

    Best,
    Aryeh

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
