A. You can find much information by following this link to Japantown Information. But suffice it to say that it is one of the 3 remaining Japantowns in the United States, located about a mile west of Union Square, and home to many Japanese restaurants, bars, stores, and a vibrant Pacific culture rarely found on this side of the Pacific.
Q. The Summit is on TBD, when should out-of-towners arrive in SF?
A. No later than your 3:00 hotel check-in the day before the Summit.
Q. Why the Future of Money & Technology Summit? Is it related to the SF MusicTech Summit? The Future of Music Policy Summit? Any other projects with Future of Money in the title?
A. The Future of Money Summit is produced by Brian Zisk and Shoshana Zisk who produce the SF MusicTech Summit. Brian is also a co-founder of The Future of Music Coalition, a Washington D.C. based non-profit which helps musicians better navigate the digital environment, and which throws the annual Future of Music Policy Summit. We are taking all that we learned from putting on the world’s best music/technology conferences, and are aiming to build what we hope to be the best conference on the Future of Money, with a San Francisco Bay Area focus, welcoming all of the great money technology developers who are active here. Brian earned his degree in Economics and International Business from NYU, and has since spent his life building companies, non-profits, and other projects. In 1996, Brian started building Transaction Net, which at the time was the leading resource on transactions on the Internet. Soon after, Brian started helping Bernard Lietaer build interest in his then forthcoming book “The Future of Money: Creating New Wealth, Work and a Wiser World“. From that point on, Brian hoped to throw a conference on the Future of Money and Technology, but got distracted by life, with his Money Conference dream only coming together over a decade later.
