What Else Can Ron Conway Become an Honorary Member of?

Scott Lucas | April 18, 2014 | Story

Today was the anniversary of the 1906 Earthquake that struck San Francisco. And though there are still a few survivors living, none of them were able to attend yesterday's commemorate lunch at John's Grill. However, thanks to a timely donation, tech VC Ron Conway was called by event organizers an "honorary survivor." We don't think that makes Conway a "time-traveling warlock," but we do think it opens up all kinds of other possibilities.
