Update II: We are Webcasting at the following address:
IRC chat as always:
Jamais Cascio who wanted to talk about Green Tomorrows just pinged me. He is not feeling well and in all likelihood will not be able to make it tomorrow :-( We wish him well and hope to have him speak another time. Update: Just talked to him and he really sounded bad, we decided if he doesn't feel better by tomorrow morning, we will try at least a 5 minute session via Skype and have him back later this year.
But we will not let this opportunity to meet and exchange great ideas pass. Let's do an Open Mike Future Salon, which we have done twice before and it was very popular.
How does it work? If there is an idea or article that you feel passionate about and would like to share with your fellow futurists, sign up at the beginning of the evening for a slot. (Unconference Style) You have 5 minutes to present and there is another 5 minutes for discussion with the audience. (In exceptional cases where the interaction level is high, we may extend it by another 5 minutes) then we give the mike to the next passionate participant.
The good news is, that John Smart and Iveta Brigis have moved up from Southern California recently. Many of you know them as they organized the Accelerating Change Conference at Stanford. They are helping me with the Future Salon and will participate tomorrow too. It is going to be an interesting evening. Sorry for the short notice. Please don't be shy, present for 5 minutes and spread the word. See you tomorrow Thursday 28th 6pm at SAP in Palo Alto. Sorry for the last minute change.
