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
