ETech 2008 conference schedule

Etechor O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference is taking place March 3-6, 2008 in San Diego. ETech is my favorite conference of the year, and I was honored to have been asked to help with the programming this time around. (Cory is also on the planning committee.) This year's schedule features an insanely eclectic mix of presentations from a broad variety of fields. Here are just some of the topics: DIY Drones, My Daughter's DNA, Green Nano and the Holy Grail, Modeling Crowd Behavior, Synthetic Neurobiology, Personalized Genomics, DIY Survival: Projects for the Apocalypse, and Mind Hacks, a panel that I'll be moderating. And that barely scratches the surface of the agenda. The whole schedule grid is now online. Hope to see you there! Link


  1. It really sounds interesting. Is it supported by all sorts of engineers? It seems like an eclectic list of topics. I hope this site will cover some of the highlights. It’s always interesting to see what will result when different types of creative intelligence gets together.

  2. @Jeff, yes, the multidisciplinarity of the agenda is definitely reflected in the audience too. In previous years, Cory has liveblogged his notes from the conference. Also, there are many other bloggers who do the same. Once the event starts, I’m sure the ETech site will link to the various blogs covering the proceedings.

  3. I’ll see you guys there :)

    I’m talking to and Wired magazine to go as press.

    I was there last year, it was a blast!

    I’ve also signed up to speak at a BoF about ‘reality hacking’ (modified version of the talk I gave at BarCamp San Diego 2)
