The 2009 Pop!Tech conference in Camden, Maine begins today. Pop!Tech is a four-day event where "thought leaders" gather to share their thoughts. This year's theme is "America Reimagined."In practice, Pop!Tech is a parade of expertly crafted presentations from very interesting people, plus some bonus networking externalities. This year's presenters include the food writer Michael Pollan, the behavioral economist Dan Ariely, the photographer Chris Jordan (whose new work was mentioned on the GOOD blog here), and the science writer Jonah Lehrer, among others.I'll be blogging from the conference. If you want to watch it live online, you can do that here (SFW). To find out who's on when, check this schedule. I'm going to be speaking with a few of the presenters in person. If you have a burning question for one of them, drop it in the comments and I'll see what I can do.Also, I forgot to bring extra socks. I'm hoping that means I'll fit in with the eccentric geniuses around here who do that kind of thing on the regular, but I'll probably just have to buy some.Photo from Flickr user Andrew-Hyde (cc)
