You’ve heard of TED talks right?
Well here’s BIL (Brilliance. Ingenuous. Lounge.) an event in a similar vein, an “open, self-organizing, emergent, and anarchic science and technology conference”. If you’ve heard of Foo/Bar camps, then it’s a similar kind of relation.
Only problem with all the cool conferences I see is that they are all in America, and often California. Hopefully I’ll get to time some of my trips later this year to coincide with some.
