The 2008 Pop!Tech conference runs from the 23 – 25 October. This year their theme is Scarcity and Abundance which should be really fascinating.
If you want a taste of what was presented last year I highly recommend watching Jessica Flannery who is the co-founder of the amazing Kiva.org, the first peer-to-peer microloan website. Kiva demonstrates how the Internet can facilitate meaningful, positive connections between lenders and entrepreneurs in the developing world and even help us all become microfinanciers. Jessica describes how listening to Mohammad Yunus for the first time was ‘a full body experience’.
