I was at the first AC conference in 2003. I attended on a lark and had a great time. I went again to AC2004, and again had a very good experience. But I’ll miss the conference this year, and I wonder – can the close-knit, community atmosphere of the past two years survive the arrival of the traveling Techno-Circus?
so will i. accelerating change 2003 was the best conference i have ever been to. a program that took no prisoners attracted a most excellent crowd. where else can you have discussions with people from the immortality institute? and now, for some unknown reason, the conference has sold out to speakers that have nothing to do with accelerating change. who cares about blogging, or even worse, podcasting? now we get “tutorials”, pitches about investing, and the admission price has increased.
