Yes!
 
We have some great speakers lined up this year! One of which is +Brian Dunning of the Skeptoid Podcast where he debunks the mass media spread of pseudoscience. If you want to hear him speak at BIL, you can grab a ticket and view the rest of the speakers at http://bilconference.com

Most of you have heard of TED or watched the talks online, but do you know about BIL, the quirky, populist, unconference taking place nearby? Open to the public and fully participant powered, BIL features a wild mix of technologists, scientists, artists, hackers, and those with a passion for community awareness. Join us March 2-4 on the historic Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach.

BIL is an un-conference -- organized and observed by the participants. BIL emerged from a community of people who aspire to change the world for the better. It's a place for passionate people to come together, energize, brainstorm, and take action! Everyone at BIL shares a common trait: BILders are the everyman thinkers and doers of today and for tomorrow.

Expect to hear a lot of topics covered, from life extension and robotics, to D.I.Y. biology, social change, the future of the pharmaceutical industry, and open hardware hacking. This year, many members of local L.A. hackerspaces and the Space Industry will participate and you can hear about the exciting technologies being developed by these amazing tinkerers. We have invited a great group of speakers, and found an amazing venue- but the rest is up to you!

Don't miss this fantastic weekend of mind expanding discussion! Sign up now to ensure you are part of the action. Find out more about BIL at www.BILconference.com.

As the plot between Silicon Valley and Hollywood thickens in the (pseudo)aftermath of SOPA, I am going to choose Silicon Valley. Every. Single. Time.

I expect some great startups to come out of this one...
RFS 9: Kill Hollywood Hollywood appears to have peaked. If it were an ordinary industry (film cameras, say, or typewriters), it could look forward to a couple decades of peaceful decline. But this is ...

Let's make sure to make good use of the talent that will be freed up, though.

I am super excited to view the next class of Thiel's 20 under 20 start to change the world... if you know anyone under 20 who is interested in technology, science, and entrepreneurship and has big ideas and audacious dreams, help them apply for the Fellowship!

Thinking of applying to the Thiel Fellowship? Did you know that most of our fellows didn't think they'd make it to the finalist round? You'll never know if you don't apply. We want to see you move for...

My new company BlackStarr is making a splash. This makes me happy. :)
 
BlackStarr Group Will Make You Love Space Again
Go ahead, read the article :)

+Simone Syed is the co-founder behind my new favorite startup. BlackStarr is a collection of "Experience Architects" and "Product Storytellers" who want to make the high tech part of popular culture exciting, feasible, and refreshing again. This is the same woman who co-founded and organizes +BIL (where I spoke earlier this year). Having the chance to meer her and become a part of her family (but seriously, her family fed me) reassures me that I think we'll be starting to hear a little bit more about BlackStarr in the near future.

BlackStarr (n) - a collective of experience architects specializing in integrating space, biotech, and high technology into popular culture.

‎"Can someone be both irrationally excited and cautiously optimistic? If so, I'm those." - +Shawn Green

Reading news on Ender's Game- Someone sez "Teen sci-fi dramas are the hot new trend of 2012." I hope so, I really do... but only if we can get away from the ever-so-present dystopian themes and morality tales telling us to stop pursuing longevity in all forms because we are 'supposed to die'.
