Please join MOAH for an exciting night with Buck’s Restaurant owner, Jamis MacNiven. MacNiven will be discussing how Silicon Valley became the forefront of technological innovation. He will also be discussing California’s history from the Gold Rush to how Silicon Valley became the place for risk-takers.

MacNiven has owned Buck's for nearly three decades, so you can imagine he has seen and heard his fair share. Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, Buck's Restaurant is a place where dreams come true. Netscape, PayPal, and Tesla are only a few start-ups out of many that were conceived at Buck's. MacNiven's known history of the Silicon Valley, the fun atmosphere he has created at Buck's, and the variety of people he has met over the years all add up to a great lecture!
