Huge thanks to Bohmod for their fantastic furniture at BIL!

Fantastic, comfy, and durable this year's BILders cuddled, sat, rocked, and slept on this super awesome furniture. Major props to them for lending it to us and we just wanted to send them a giant thanks! So thanks, Bohmod Furniture. You rule!

BIL 2013 is going spectacularly well!

We've heard talks about space exploration, emerging healthcare, privacy, and on top of all of that we're meeting the people just like us - weird, driven, brilliant, and forward thinking. We'll post all the photos later, but here's a taste. Getting ready for drinks tonight and another day of awesomeness tomorrow :)

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. BIL emerged from a community of people who aspire to change the world for the better. 

The BIL Conference 2013 speaker lists include brilliant emerging and established forward thinkers at the top of their fields. This year’s topics focus on innovation, life extension, space, robotics, social change, interpersonal relationships, community, education, and art.

LiftPort raises over 1,200% of its original goal

Support for the space community is rarely seen in this capacity. Go on. Be a part of it and say that you were one of the first supporters of the future of space travel.
 
The future of tomorrow is made now - Be a part of it
Help LiftPort reach $100,000 by midnight!  http://goo.gl/AbLJY

We started out only asking for $8,000 for a simple test. Now we're less than $1,000 away from $100,000. That's over 1,200% support! We've excited you about space and we're able now to do more research than we ever thought possible. You made the very notion of a sci-fi space elevator more possible than it's ever been. Now stay a part of our process by becoming a supporter! 

We're dedicated to doing the hard research and feasibility tests to make sure a space elevator is built. A space elevator is possible....but ONLY if we start seriously testing our technologies now. Go see what all the fuss is about and donate even the smallest amount if you can.

Formal Bash Tonight!

And by formal we mean please wear as little as possible, glowing and sparkling attire mandatory, and revealing outfits encouraged. Amounts and types of alcohol available? Think Willy Wonka style.

Announcing the BIL hangout series!
Join us all day, Saturday and Sunday

This year, like last year, we'll be hosting hangouts with the speakers of BIL 2013! After their talk, one of our excellent community managers will sit down with the speaker to further discuss their topics. It was a hit last year and we hope that no matter what the topic is - space, sex, tech, privacy, etc - that you throw us your questions!

Don't forget to follow BIL on Google+ to see everything go down this Saturday and Sunday! Come set your minds free.

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!

BIL is based in the belief that our desire to learn and explore is innate.

To not seek this knowledge is to deny the human experience. 
 
We are drawn back to where we came from

Exploring is natural for us. Space fascinates us. Liftport is dedicated to making sure that we explore this frontier to the fullest. We've all come from the same place and it's time to be excited about it.
