What a fascinating night. Causes founder Joe Green...

Published #Politics, #ABetterAmerica

What a fascinating night. Causes founder Joe Green came over and while puffing on cigars we talked with people from all over America at the The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay.

#Politics were discussed. No fights ensued. :-)

It was my first time meeting Joe. Don't know who he is? Well, he went to college with Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. He also has helped start a few companies, including NationBuilder.

I wanted to meet Joe because he has started a political organization, FWD.us, which is aimed at improving immigration law in the United States. This stuff affects all of us in the tech community deeply.

Joe came off as quite different than I expected. Very thoughtful and reflective, particularly about his own skills.

One thing everyone around the campfire after the discussion: we all want #ABetterAmerica. Trick is in figuring out just what that means and just how to get there.

I'm all in on FWD.us. After hearing what Joe's doing I think he's doing awesome work. Too tired to talk about more politics online, but we'll come back to it someday. Immigration Law is too important for us to ignore further.

Time for us to get involved.
