Pop!Tech

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 2007/10/17

I’ve already talked about one TED presentation. Well, today I’m talking about another conference network of the same kind. Pop!Tech shares the same purpose as TED: to spread extraordinary ideas through remarkable people that have the power to change the world.

Every October, in the beautiful seaside village of Camden, Maine, at the height of the fall foliage season, there is a one-of-a-kind conference called Pop!Tech.

Held in a beautifully restored, 19th-century opera house, this three-day summit explores the cutting-edge ideas, emerging technologies and new forces of change that are shaping our collective future. The conference brings together 500 visionary thinkers in the sciences, technology, business, design, the arts, education, government and culture.

I am following the Pop!Casts provided by Yahoo and I am delighted with the presentations I heard. I suggest you take a look and hear a couple of them.
