Nanotechnology & more at Foresight Vision Weekend, Nov. 3-4

PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on August 16th, 2007

We've learned that you demand a highly interactive meeting, so this year we'll be experimenting with a new format including big chunks of time for the Unconference meeting style which is taking the technical world by storm.

See Why ‘unconferences' are fun conferences in Business 2.0.

We'll be getting the event website up shortly, but wanted to get the dates onto your calendar immediately. Special thanks go to Salim Ismail, who heads up the Brickhouse at Yahoo!, for arranging their donation of meeting space. Note that we have a firm limit of 200 participants, so please register early when the site is posted — we'll let you know.

At this meeting, we gather the best minds to look at the future of nanotech and other revolutionary technologies, and how they can be guided. It's both visionary and great fun. Speaker/participants from previous years include: Bruce Ames, Gregory Benford, Stewart Brand, David Brin, Sergey Brin, John Doerr, Eric Drexler, Esther Dyson, Doug Engelbart, Ed Feigenbaum, David Friedman, Leon Fuerth, John Gilmore, Bill Joy, Steve Jurvetson, Brewster Kahle, Ray Kurzweil, Lawrence Lessig, Marvin Minsky, Peter Neumann, Tim O'Reilly, Eric Raymond, Paul Saffo, Eric Schmidt, Peter Schwartz, Vernor Vinge, Roy Walford, and Stephen Wolfram.

Hope to see you there! —Christine

About foresight.org
Founded in 1986, we were the first organization to educate society about the benefits and risks of nanotechnology. At that time our focus was on preparing society for nanotechnology, then a little known science and technology.

Today, with the basic framework of public understanding in place, we are focusing on advancing beneficial nanotechnology. Our efforts are turned to guiding nanotechnology research, public policy and education to address six major challenges that humanity faces.

The six Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges are the framework for our work. This work is accomplished by providing balanced, accurate and timely information to help society understand and prepare for nanotechnology through public policy activities, publications, guidelines, networking events, tutorials, conferences, roadmaps, and prizes.

We work closely with governments, multi-national organizations, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), environmental groups, the policy community, professional associations, and civic sector organizations to achieve our goal of broad based nanotechnology education and public policy improvement.
