Convergence 08 conference

November 15-16th, 2008

This conference looks just brilliant. Relaxed, informal, networking with other enthusiasts and it should be fascinating.

Half the programme is generated by individuals setting up their own meetings and discussions; and the rest can choose to attend those they are interested in. There are meals for more networking on the Friday and the Saturday nights.

The Attendees

Enthusiasts will be there as well as experts in the field of longevity and ‘the future’.

Keynote speakers include: Peter Norvig, Director of Research at Google; Aubrey de Grey; and Terry Grossman (co-author with Ray Kurzweil of the great book Fantastic Voyage).

The event is being held at the Computer History Museum – which sounds just great – in Mountain View in the middle of Silicon Valley.

The cost is just $145 (book soon) and rooms at the recommended hotel are is $95 per night.

Looks exciting to me. If you are going – comment on this post and perhaps we can meet up.
