Any good conference ideas?

Asked by jsc3791 (1983points) October 9th, 2008

I need to turn in a list of conference that I would like to attend in 2009. I have to give it to my boss by the end of the day. I work in marketing.

Does anyone know of anything interesting in 2009 that I should sign up for?

@BronxLens… WOW! TED looks awesome!

It seems a bit difficult to get into. Have you been? Do you know how hard it is to get in?

Suuure, it may be hard, but I bet you after poking around the Ted website & downloading the presentations to their desktops or iPods and immersing themselves in this ‘possibilities’ camp, someone’s gonna make an extra effort to go to the one on 2010, or 2011, or whenever.
