Celebrating the return of the good old Banner Ad.
Now that everybody and his Terrier has Google ads on his Blog I am going retro and introduce my first Banner Ad.
Who said, that you don't get any benefits from frequenting the Bay Area Futurist Weblog.
The people organizing the Accelerating Change Conference [Full discloser, I am actually one of them, although this wasn't my idea] have extended the early bird special: Save $100 (25%) on conference admission until August 4th, for the Accelerating Change Conference 2003, Stanford University, September 12-14.
That is not all: People that frequent the Bay Area Futurist Salon or our web pages get an additional discount of 5% by using the special discount code "ACC2003-BAFuture" (no quotations) when registering. Registration is available at http://www.accelerating.org/acc2003/registration.htm.
The Accelerating Change Conference will be a forum to explore the paradise of resources, as well as the risks and responsibilities, represented by cascading breakthroughs in computational technologies.
Accelerating change is a fact; what to do? Ray Kurzweil, K. Eric Drexler, Steve Jurvetson, Tim O'Reilly, William H. Calvin, Howard Bloom, Robert Wright, and 17 other world-class minds will present to 300 attendees, focusing on the profound risks and opportunities of business and society's accelerating pace of change.
For more information, please check the web page.
Update: There goes my exclusivity: Cory over at Boing Boing Blog is offering the same discount. And Rebecca picked it up already and is asking: "Am I cool enough to go to this?" Boing Boing may have more readers, but you are doers, you do sign up using discount code "ACC2003-BAFuture". :-)
