Just caught wind of this conference from Katrin over at MobileActive (who will be a speaker this year, btw).
According to the Pop!Tech site, the conference brings together “eclectic network of industry leaders, scientists, technologies, social change agents, artists, educators, the press, bloggers, explorers and one-of-a-kind thought-leaders from a huge variety of fields and number of different places – bound together by an intense curiosity about the forces, challenges and opportunities shaping our future.”
Held mid-October in Camden, Maine, this event looks like anything but your typical techcentric convention. A quaint seaside town replaces the usual Silicon Valley locale, and high-energy networking gets swapped out for a “relaxed and informal” vibe. Definitely worth checking out, if only for a new take on a 2.0-type gathering.
