We’re calling March’s PandoMonthly event the “We’re Sorry” edition for two reasons.
The first is we’re really sorry we had such sound and venue problems in February and to make up for it, we’re giving everyone who registered for a ticket last time free entry in March. If you have an annual pass, you may bring a plus-one. No need to do anything, we’ll have your name on the list automatically.
The other reason is our guest is Path founder and CEO Dave Morin. Morin recently made the apology heard around the tech world.
Path has had an insanely tumultuous ride over its short history. It launched, bravely turned down a massive acquisition offer from Google, pivoted, was delighted with cheers of joy after that pivot, then got embroiled in a scandal over user data. Morin apologized and that seemed to go well…for a bit. Then bizarrely Path got pulled into an epic fight to the death in the blogosphere. One of the weirder things said about Path recently was a reporter who told Arrington that he was attacking Path simply because Morin was so arrogant. I’m betting there’s a good chance that reporter had never even really spent time with him everything
Let me say up front: Our plan isn’t to lynch Morin, so leave the torches and pitchforks at home. If you want a “Gotcha!” interview with emails that don’t actually prove anything, this won’t be the event for you. If you want a thoughtful discussion on how to navigate a company when things don’t go according to plan, you’ll love it.
Single tickets are $20. Annual passes are $1,000 and include VIP seating for every San Francisco PandoMonthly event in 2012. We'll do additional surprise bonuses for subscribers as the year unfolds. There are only thirty left for the entire year, and the ticket is transferrable between friends, co-founders or investors and portfolio companies.
We're pleased to announce that we have a new venue: Madrone Studios at 1417 15th street in San Francisco. We'll also be serving pizza and beer to all of our guests.
As always, we’ll live stream each talk on the site as well, sponsored by UStream. The entire series is brought to you by our sponsors, Sequoia Capital.
We are also very pleased to welcome all of you to our new event venue, Madrone Studios.
