Get Rebooted in SF, July 18-19, with Rand Paul, Nick Gillespie, Kmele Foster, and More!

Get 15% with special online promo code!


Attention, Bay Area-area Reasonoids! I'm appearing at the Lincoln Labs Reboot conference on July 18-20 at San Francisco's W Hotel.

"Reboot" is bringing together libertarian and conservative programmers, entrepreneurs, activists, and others to explore common areas of concern in all sorts of tech policy and possibilities. 

The list of presenters is pretty awesome (despite my inclusion). Sen. Rand Paul is keynoting and characters such as John Dennis, the libertarian office-furniture magnate who ran a spirited campaign against Nancy Pelosi; Derek Khanna, who got bounced from the Republican Study Committee after questioning intellectual property laws; and Kmele Foster, the co-host with Kennedy and Reason's own Matt Welch of Fox Business' The Independents.

I'll be giving a talk titled "WTF: How to Woo Millennials and Win the Future with Free Minds and Free Markets."

Go here for a full list of speakers, sessions, and events (hmm, hackathon…). readers get 15 percent off all tickets by using the promo code reason when registering.

Read more about the conference and its goals in this Wall Street Journal piece. A snippet:

"The purpose of the conference is to set a high bar for what can be achieved if you bring together problem-solvers in the political space with problem-solvers in the technology space," said Garrett Johnson, a onetime aide to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar who co-founded LincolnLabs.

The group was established to help recruit tech talent for libertarian or conservative causes at a time when liberal groups and the Democratic Party have a massive advantage in using technology to find voters and persuade them to support its candidates and causes. Its founders are careful not to align themselves directly with the Republican Party, but GOP leaders hope the group attracts talent to its more official efforts to modernize the party.

  1. SF? Sugar Free’s gonna be there? TAKE MY MONEY!

  3. I won’t be at the conference, but I’d love to go to some sort of related get-together at a bar one evening. Or maybe other SF-area H+R commenters want to use this as an excuse to get together.

    1. I’m in the same boat. This is a little too establishment-cozy of a hangout for me — Neel Kashkari in particular can go sit on a pitchfork.

      But I’d definitely be up for meeting with SF-area H+R people.

      1. If they’d been a bit more clever, they’d have posted this at the end of the day, so West coasters would be more likely to see it.

        Maybe we can arrange something with Sevo and C. Anacreon and whoever else is local. You can email me ( if you want, or we can what until closer to the date.

  4. Sounds like a serious smack down to me dude.
