4th Annual Emerging Technology Conference
March 14-17, 2005 in San Diego, CA

Passionate about technology and its implications? Immerse yourself in a
network of like minds at the 2005 O'Reilly Emerging Technology
Conference, aka ETech.

Don't miss out!  Early Bird registration has just opened, and economical
pricing will be in effect until January 31, 2005. For all the details,

This year's conference theme is "Remix," which infuses ETech's
roll-up-your-sleeves tutorials, meaty and to-the-point plenary
presentations, and real world focused breakout sessions. Come to ETech
and discover how applications and hardware are being deconstructed and
recombined in unexpected ways. Learn how accidental developers--users
and customers--are influencing new interfaces, devices, business models,
and services. Just a few of the intriguing people and projects at the
conference include:

 - Law Professor Lawrence Lessig points the way to an open and
 - Arthur van Hoff, Principal Engineer at TiVo, turns television into an
operating system on which to build applications and to which the next
level of video content can be delivered
 - Writer and technologist Cory Doctorow sees the Internet as an
ecosystem, parasites and all
 - Analyst Clay Shirky espouses the value of semi-structured data in
rescuing semantics from the Semantic Web
 - Noted programmer Joel Spolsky infuses character and quality into
communities through software and design choices
 - Flickr founder Stewart Butterfield opens up, embracing web services
and network effects as a startup strategy
 - Hardware hackers Tom Igoe and Raffi Krikorian build small, simple
microcontroller-based network objects
 - Kathy Sierra brings the latest research in cognitive science, brain
chemistry, and psychology to bear on creating passionate users

A face-to-face gathering is still one of the best ways of making sure
information is more evenly distributed. At ETech, you can learn from the
experiences of other attendees, from the projects and prognostications
of speakers, and from the products the exhibitors are actually shipping.
