Full support! 
 
Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences

Yes, I'm sure the publicity is a big part of it, but it's nice to see Google and Facebook set aside their differences like this.

"Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook; Brin, who co-founded Google; and Milner, a venture capitalist, have dipped into their fortunes to sponsor awards worth $3m each, compared with a Nobel prize's monetary value of $1.1m"

"Anyone online can nominate someone for a Breakthrough prize and organisers envisage winners will tend to be scientists still in their prime rather than retired scientists honoured for decades-old research. There is no limit on the number of people who can share a prize, in contrast to the Nobel which caps it at three"

UC Berkeley, UCSF, Stanford researchers all in for Obama's brain-mapping initiative

"Bay Area neuroscientists are jumping into President Barack Obama's new initiative to map the brain to find road maps to treating and curing diseases ranging from Alzheimer's to autism."

Looking for even more reasons to come to BIL? TechZulu has you covered

We're an unconference. We empower our participants to be our planners and our planners are our speakers. This awesome TechZulu writeup explains not only how we're different than TED (think not being charged $6,000 for ticket) and shows us off a little - even though it makes us blush.

Enjoy the read and we can't wait to see you at BIL!

Story
Tagline
Adventure Traveler. Photographer. Conference Organizer
Introduction
I'm like a hermit crab, but not in that socially shy way.  I have worn a lot of shells in my days, and its hard to say I ever had a favorite.

Most people know me as a photographer.  You'll probably come to know me as more than that if you add me to any circles.  

I'm a science geek, a front end web guy, an idea champion, and I even help organize and run +BIL Conference for all you other lovers of learning.
