Wanna know what some smart people are thinking about a couple of relevant topics to humanity, e.g.:

Day One: Inner space: Transforming Ourselves
Longevity, Life Extension, Nanotech, Nanomedicine, Bionics, Biotech, SENS, Cryonics

Day Two: Meta space: Transforming Humanity
Environment, Global Warming, Sustainable Housing, Alternative Energy, AI, Robotics, Virtual Reality

Day Three: Outer space: Beyond the Planet
Future Humans, Colonizing Outer space, Space Tourism, Future Civilizations

Than this Transvision2007 get-together might be something worthwhile paying a visit. Being in Europe, its a bit to far for me to hop in, but I definitely look forward to some post-event DinnerTV videos at their site. I read here that Kurzweil is even planning to experience zero gravity in one of ZERO-G's airplanes...

Btw, running the risk of being cheesy, I think this photoshop job at their website is kinda funny as it reminds me of the many 'Second Life chat meeting' images that are currently circulating the web (like below one from an amazon webservice chat session). Why don't we all be seated next to a geostationary satellite's optical camera and let the Earth do the talkin'...;)
