I'm currently at the 2005 World Technology Summit and Awards conference in San Francisco. It's the first time I've attended a World Technology Network event. The conference brings together (roughly 150) leaders in diverse fields (IT, communications, biotech, materials/nanotechnology, energy and space) for two days of discussions, presentations and social events. Day one has been extremely interesting and I've met a variety of really fascinating people, in other disciplines and in communications. I'm glad I came.
I'm impressed with people who can blog conferences in real time, but sitting down to write this short note in the early morning of the second day, it's clear I'll never be such a reporter. While I'm at an event, I'm too caught up in the opportunities for face-to-face discussion and in absorbing details during presentations. So this is all you'll get out of me today! I promise to write up something later in the week on the conference in general, my communications keynote address and the discussions in the communications breakout session I moderated yesterday afternoon. But right now I have to get back to the excitement!
