On Dec. 8-9, The Tech Museum in partnership with the MIT Museum will sponsor a major conference and design challenge entitled Program for the Future… The Program for
the Future is about tools that improve our collective intelligence, and
is inspired by the vision of Doug Engelbart — the man who invented the
computer mouse, graphical user interface and pioneered the concept of
networked computers — to harness technology to augment human intellect
and improve our ability to work together. On
December 8 and 9 we'll hear from some of today's most provocative
speakers, then brainstorm ways to enhance our capability for problem
solving, decision making, knowledge organization, and planning in every
field of human endeavor.
For more information, see the conference program or this blog post. The conference is $275 to attend, but you can participate for free in Second Life! To register,
go to programforthefuture.org/registration.
