[chox] POP TECH

Hello to everyone!

 I wanted to drop you all a note about this year's 
PopTech conference (http://www.poptech.com) 
which is coming up from October  20-22nd.

 Specifically, I wanted to let you know that if you're 
interested, you can listen to the entire (sold out) conference streamed 
live over the Internet for free -- and ask questions in real time! 
Instructions are at the bottom of this letter.

This year's event is going to be a huge one for the confterence, and 
here's why:

* We're going to exploring the theme of "Grand Challenges" -- addressing 
issues like
#  the cataloguing of the world's true genetic diversity, 
#  transforming our approach to development and disaster relief,
# exploring  the future of desktop fabrication, 
# speculating about the future impact of China,
# inventing the world's first completely synthetic organism, and 
dozens of others. We'll also do some amazing stuff like meet Jesse 
Sullivan, the first bionic man, and take a tour of Saturn with the chief 
imaging scientist of the Cassini missions - and that's just a sampler!

 I think it will be the strongest conference we've ever done - please see 
the website for the full list of speakers.

* We're going to be filming a major PBS special at the conference! The 
show will run nationally and internationally in early 2006. Also, we're 
going to be producing a companion PopTech book -- a unique experiment in 
group-publishing in which the speakers, and the audience, will be 
answering a set of consistent questions about the future.

* This year, PopTech partnered with the United Nations and Sun 
Microsystems to bring 12 young pan-African technology and development 
thought leaders to conference as "Participation Age Fellows". The day 
*after* the conference (Sunday, October 23), we'll be convening (and 
filming) a round-table discussion with the Fellows on the future of 
Africa and the role of technology within it.

If you'd like to listen to any or all of the conference, you can check 
out this web page, which will be live throughout the event:


If you'd like to ask questions, you can submit them at any time during 
the conference to

live poptech.org

I hope you will tune in -- there are going to be some *superb* ideas 
shared with the world.
