ETech 2006 Call for Participation

The last chance to submit proposals for the Emerging Technology 2006 conference is this Monday, September 19. The overall theme of the conference is the progressive trend toward making technology useful, helping us rediscover what’s meaningful instead of overwhelming us with information. But it’s just a theme, so don’t let it hold you back if you have a great idea.

This year, I’m honored to be sitting on the program committee with such geek luminaries as Clay Shirky, Tom Coates, Cory Doctorow, and Rael Dornfest. (I’m not sure how that happened, but I suspect a bug in Rael’s committee nomination code.)

Anyway, get those proposals in! I promise to selfishly try to design a conference that I’d want to go to.


    Hey Andrew, we submitted a couple of proposals already to the conference and we’re thinking about submitting one more. I know there’s a ton of details and examples on the site, but I was wondering what criteria you guys are using to evaluate these proposals. How does the process work? Do you guys all decide independently or do you guys at some point get together and discuss each entry as a group?

    How do you do it? How do you keep up with the crazy tech world on a daily basis? Good Lord, I am impressed. I never understood blogging until I found your site. I have no idea how I originally found your site, but now I find myself checking it every day. The re-do of “The Shining” trailer was just classic.

    Bravo. And thank you!
