Accelerating Change 2004

Looks like John Smart is busy organizing Accelerating Change 2004, the 2nd annual conference hosted by the Institute for Accelerating Change:
On September 10 to 12 at Stanford University, the Institute for Accelerating Change hosts its second annual conference, Accelerating Change 2004. AC2004 provides a unique opportunity to learn from and network with world-class thinkers discussing today's most important trends in the science, technology, business, and humanism of accelerating change.

This year's theme explores the intersection of three key trends: the accelerating interconnectivity of the physical world, the increasing accuracy of the simulated world, and the growing importance of the physical-virtual, human-machine interface. Each of these trends alone is profoundly impacting society today. Together, they paint a revolutionary picture of the future.

AC2004 features engaging interactive debates, a virtual world demonstration session, a collective intelligence dinner, among other events and activities.

We will continue with last year's successful format of analysis, speculation, and action themes, using both transdisciplinary inquiry and a synthesis of material, ethical, and spiritual dialog.
I'm seriously thinking of attending. We'll have to see how things go for me over the next several months.
