AO2007: Innovation Summit @ Stanford [ was A02005 ]

<ed.note>Apparently I missed the 2006 archives but the videos for 2007 are available here. Also, Tony Perkins pointed out the very helpful entrepreneurship education site,

Also, Going Green is slated for Sept 10-12 at UC-Davis. I’ll get to see if HP, IBM, or SUN ( not the first to do this here – kudos to Amit Kulkarni ) pick up on the geothermal heat exchange equipped data center approach I suggested via chat at AO2007. Oh, will the venture capital establishment ever discover me here on the "Innovation Plantation"? what more could they want? — I’ve already got the dot commie domain name. ;-)</ed.note>

July 19th – 21st, 2005
The Frances C Arrillaga Alumni Center
Stanford University, Palo Alto

This is quick a heads up to let you know that we (in partnership with Akamai) will be webcasting the entire AlwaysOn Summit @ Stanford for FREE starting today (Tuesday, July 19th) at 6pm PST. To check it out, go to the AO homepage.

Most radically, this live webcast will include a live chat so your questions and comments will appear on the big screen at the show, so you must join in on the fun. Whether you are looking for new strategic partners, big customers, or new investors, viewing the Summit offers a certain ROI. Last year the Summit @ Stanford was viewed by 6,500 people from 72 countries. We expect an even bigger webcast crowd this year.

The goal of the Summit program is to focus on the sweet spots in the technology markets – where innovation is disrupting behavior and creating new business opportunities. We have gathered this powerful group of global thought leaders and new entrepreneurs to show exactly where the opportunities lie.

To see how all these fine folks listed below fit into the Summit check out the full program here.
