We're deep in the throes of programming Techonomy '18, the flagship conference for Techonomy Media. It will be 3 days of intense discussions about the impact of technology on business and society and given the current state of things, some of the conversations are taking a dystopian turn. But that keeps it interesting, right?
Techonomy founder and host David Kirkpatrick has been writing about some of the things you can expect while you're there and the variety of voices you will hear. I'm excited that Manoush will be joining the program to talk about her revolutionary journalism experiment (if you haven't started listening to her new podcast ZigZag, you should probably go ahead and catch up now). We've also got Marissa Mayer joining us - can't wait to hear what she's working on these days; and, Tim Berners-Lee, who will shed some light on what the internet has become. There will be a live debate, hosted by the Intelligence Squared folks (and the topic they're developing is super provocative) and a live musical performance by a special guest (we're debating internally - so many bands!).
And, it will be at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA. Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places in the country (see photo!). So, yea -- you should probably find a way to join the program. Your brain and your body will thank you for it. (and if you want to learn more about how to participate, email me)
