I just got e-mailed about this today and immediately signed up. Emerging Technologies 07 in Ames from Wednesday, April 25 to Friday, April 27.
Anyway, those of you interested in the intersection of technology and politics might want to check out this conference. It is free. If anyone wants to hook up for beers, I'll be at the IgniteIT thingy on Thursday night as well as for Kawasaki and Stephenson (I'm a HUGE fanboy) for sure. I'll also be in on the Agriculture Track events on Wed.
