Just outta beta, again

Pop!Tech streaming live for the next three days

Pop!Tech is one of the most interesting conferences devoted to new ideas — it fried my brain the year I attended. And that guy Hasan Elahi, who I profiled? I heard about it because he did a presentation on his photoblogging work at last year’s conference. This year’s three-day conference begins tomorrow morning, and they’re streaming the entire conference live on this page, so you can attend Pop!Tech virtually, while never leaving the comfort of your joyless cubicle.

Personally, I plan to tune in to the session on “The Creative Instinct”, tomorrow from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. The four presenters include Caleb Chung — the incredibly smart robotics inventor who created the Furby, and who I wrote about for Wired last year — and Jessica Hagy, who has made an art form out of drawing faux-corporate flow-charts.
