If you're in Washington, D.C. on Monday, October 3, e21 and the Manhattan Institute are sponsoring a can't-miss event with Peter Thiel, one of America's foremost tech entrepreneurs:

Please join us for a discussion with Peter Thiel, a leading technology entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and e21 Board Member, will lead the discussion.

Mr. Thiel first gained attention for innovations in banking and startup finance. He rose to national prominence as the mentor to the entrepreneurs behind PayPal, as well as for his warnings of a coming technology deficit with severe economic consequences. Mr. Thiel is working to accelerate innovation to prevent such a crisis by identifying and funding promising technology ideas and by guiding successful companies to scale. Mr. Thiel is also the author of “The End of the Future,” an article featured this month in National Review.

The event will be held at the National Press Club from 3:00 to 4:30. There's more about the event, as well as registration information here. If you want to further prepare yourself for Thiel's discussion or can't make it to the event, pick up a copy of National Review. His aforementioned cover story is highly recommended.
