Mark Finnern one of the organizer of the ACC2003 (Accelerating Change Conference 2003) told me about this highly interesting event about the Future. Mark runs the Futurist Salon in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The ACC2003 features famous speakers like Ray Kurzweil, Steve Jurventson, Tim O'Reilly and more.
Excerpt from the Conference Description:
ACC2003 will be the first conference in the world to focus on the multidisciplinary implications of accelerating change, including the possibility and consequences of a technological singularity (the ever-faster self-development of technological intelligence). This groundbreaking event is a must for individuals interested in staying abreast of the most important issues of our time. With its high caliber of speakers, numerous opportunities for attendee interaction, and the broad relevance of its carefully chosen dialogs, ACC2003 has the potential to be a landmark experience for participants.
The conference is from the 12th-14th of September in Stanford University in Palo Alto California.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
