Foresight Vision Weekend "Putting Feynman's Vision Into Action"
Senior Associates Gathering, May 14-16, 2004 in Palo Alto
Welcome Reception Friday, May 14, at 7 pm
PRELIMINARY PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE: https://legacy.foresight.org/SrAssoc/spring2004/program.html
What aspect of our nanotech future most excites you – repairing the human body, ending chemical pollution, creating economic abundance, developing space resources, delivering basic necessities – like clean water – to the developing world…or how about a personal role in making all this happen?
Hear tech visionaries sketch what's coming, then join them in brainstorming how to make the future we're picturing today into the reality of tomorrow. Next: we implement!
SEND US YOUR BREAKOUT TOPICS NOW:
Let us know what breakout topics you most want to participate in – or lead. Nanotech and Medicine, Nanotech for the Environment, Nanotech Law, Nanotech Business/Investing, or…[your proposal here!].
COMMENTS ON PREVIOUS MEETINGS:
CONFIRMED SPEAKERS INCLUDE (see website for updates):
Steve Jurvetson, Draper Fisher Jurvetson: Steve has a clear view of how private money can move nanotech forward
Prof. Ralph C. Merkle, Georgia Tech: Ralph presents his popular "Top Ten" nanotech achievements
K. Eric Drexler, Nanotechnologist and author of Engines of Creation and Nanosystems: Eric will inspire us to take action
Derrick Boston, Senior Vice President at California Nanosystems Institute: Derrick gives his perspective on the intersection of research, politics, and business in nanotech
Christine Peterson, President, Foresight Institute: Christine describes the current state of play and what needs to be done to make advanced nanotech happen sooner and safer
Mike Treder, Center for Responsible Nanotechnology: Mike discusses alliances and challenges for a safe and beneficial future with nanotech
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN STEERING YOUR NANOTECH FUTURE
This conference will have a strong focus on empowering you to take action:
- Join one of the new Special Interest Groups – on Nanotech and Medicine, the Environment, Law, or Business/Investing – to move your goals for advanced nanotech (and your own role) forward.
- Your special interest not on the list? How about Space Applications, Education, even Fiction/Hollywood? Start a new SIG to bring together those sharing your particular goal.
- Had trouble getting your colleagues, or even your spouse, to understand what's coming? Now you can sponsor guests at the meeting – let them hear for themselves and feel the excitement of nanotech's potential.
- Want a career in advanced nanotech? Start positioning yourself now by getting to know those most directly involved today.
This year's Foresight Vision Weekend will be "bottom-up" and "self-organizing", so bring your ideas and let's take action to make Feynman's vision for nanotechnology happen both sooner and safer, for everyone.
We'll picture what molecular nanotechnology (MNT) will bring, and strategize on how each of us can participate in what's coming during the years ahead.
