Today we're launching a conference for thoughtcrime. Here's why —
for the last few months my colleagues and I have been working on a conference for thoughtcrime. today we're launching the concept -
Peter Thiel is starting “a conference for people banned from other conferences”, “a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces”. Extremely on-brand.
Next May Founders Fund is hosting Hereticon, a conference for heretics "while our culture is fascinated by the righteousness of our historical heretics, it is obsessed with the destruction of the heretics among us today" Learn more and get tickets here
"Growth is impossible without dissent. A world without heretics is a world in decline, and in a declining civilization everything we value, from science and technology to prosperity and freedom, is in jeopardy."
Fresh off the failure of Rova-T (the cancer drug it backed), Founder's Fund is hosting a conference to discuss, among other topics, immortality. I know I'm just a pleb, but maybe start with developing a drug first?
. is hosting a conference for “thought crime.” “Imagine a conference for people banned from other conferences. Imagine a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces.”
A Silicon Valley conference called "Hereticon" will convene thought criminals--those with unspeakable ideas (1/4)
"Imagine a conference for people banned from other conferences. Imagine a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces." Sounds fucking horrific.
Oh my god. Is this a joke, or an elaborate Darren Brown social experiment to get all the biggest douchebags together in one room? Can you imagine the sort of guy who thinks "yeah I really need to go to this"
peter thiel starting a conference that is a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces is the worst rendition of Russell’s Paradox 😂
"Imagine a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces." >> sounds like a conference for assholes but ok
"Imagine a conference for people banned from other conferences. Imagine a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in safe spaces. " [gets popcorn.png]
“a conference for people banned from other conferences” is a genuinely funny line, but my question is what is “revisionist demography”?
