Last week, changemakers from across the globe dug into the theme “Tech for Humanity” as part of our new event series, The Feast Worldwide.
From health-care systems to online education, how can we get the most brilliant makers, designers, and developers to work on what matters?
We wanted to explore this theme with some food for thought. Justin Kosslyn kicked it off by sharing his work at Google Ideas, a think/do tank that explores how technology can enable people to confront threats in the face of conflict.
By connecting users, experts and engineers they seed new technology-driven initiatives that bring real change. He left us chewing on the question of the night: How might we encourage technology that can truly change the world?
We were joined by incredible Feasters exploring the same question across the globe, from Mexico City to Kuala Lumpur. (Pssst…! There’s still time to snag a seat at Boston’s table on 1/27! RSVP here).
Many thanks to General Assembly for co-hosting, and to our friends at MailChimp for making our conversation happen. A special thank you to Rooftop Supperclub for preparing our delicious feast. You guys are amazing, and we can’t wait to do it again.

It’s almost SXSW and everyone knows what that means - parties galore and lots of digerati schmoozing. But what if you could make all that count for good too?
