Times have been tough in so many ways and community is more important than ever. At the Austin Forum, we have been feeling the loss from the lack of our wonderful in-person events, which often drew 200-300 people to the beautiful Austin Library. We are thankful that Zoom has enabled us to continue connecting and sustaining our community, and even allowed us to reach new people outside of Austin.
In the midst of all the change and chaos, we want to say that we are so thankful for people staying a part of the Austin Forum. We are grateful for our advisory board and sponsors for helping us be able to spread the word and extend our reach beyond Austin. Despite the challenge of the transition from in-person to online, we have embraced this opportunity to host virtual events. As we begin to close 2020 (finally!), and moving forward in 2021, we will continue to optimize our events for an increasingly large and distributed audience. We look forward to exploring new kinds of events, like virtual movie watching and "fireside chats" with technology experts, and more.
We hope you can join, support, and attend our last amazing 3 events of the year. They represent everything that the Austin Forum is about- super nerdy (Quantum computing on November 10th), super feel good (Tech & Social Impact on December 1st), and super fun (The Future of Gaming Technologies and Applications on December 15th).
We look forward to seeing you there.
