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.I'm seriously thinking of attending. We'll have to see how things go for me over the next several months.
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.
