The Urge to Converge

As Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Humanity Plus (an event sponsor), please excuse this interruption for a very important announcement:

Join a historic convergence of leading long-term organizations and thought leaders. Two days with people at the forefront of world-changing technologies that challenge our perception of what can and should be done – reshaping your career, body and mind.

Convergence08 is an Unconference – Each day starts and ends with an eye-opening debate or keynote to inspire us, and the remaining agenda is created by YOU.

Join in freewheeling discussions on topics below, or – better yet – convene your own group focused on exactly what you think is most important:

Artificial general intelligence
Synthetic biology
Human enhancement
Space tourism
Social software
Prediction markets
Smart drugs
NBIC startup tips
Reputation systems
Life extension / anti-aging
Accelerating change
Open source everything
Sousveillance / privacy

Don't see your topics here? Add them to the Convergence08 Wiki! You just may get a new startup or film project crystallizing around your topic before the conference is over.
All this takes place at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley – where new technological revolutions grow like weeds. Come help the next one get launched!

Convergence08 will be held November 15-16, 2008. I'll be there. Hope to see you there, too!
