Upcoming LOVELAND Parties & Presentations
Oh man, we got event LOVELAND stuffs coming up in San Francisco, New York, and Detroit (The Third Coast!). On the presentation end:
☛ On April 20-21 I’ll be speaking on a panel at the 140 Characters Conference in New York. As they say, “This event is shaping up to being the largest worldwide gathering of people interested in the effects of the real-time Internet on both business and “we” the people.” Tickets are, appropriately, $140 for the two days.
☛ On May 17-18, Mary and I will be in Palo Alto, CA at a conference by the Institute for the Future where we’ve been invited to give a keynote talk about LOVELAND with the title “Persuading People To Care”. This one is a private conference for invited members of the IFTF network.
☛ On the 19th or 20th (to be determined) we’ll be in Mountain View, CA to give a talk at one of the Acceleration Studies Foundation's Future Salon meetups. This one's totally free and open.
