I cannot imagine missing the Singularity Summit. It will take me 45 minutes to get there from my house (thanks to public trans).
October 13-14th, 2012 in San Francisco.
Put this in your stash — mp3s of brilliant people selling inspirational ideas. That’s a recording of every Singularity Summit from the beginning, in 2006. I remember sitting in the second row at that one. Frame-changing insights. Interspersed with a few odd balls.
