Twitter 140 Conference and WordCamp San Francisco

Technology Report will be live blogging the Twitter 140 Conference in Mountain View California and WordCamp San Francisco on Saturday May 30th.

*The two day Twitter event starts Tuesday May 26th*

This is only the second WordCamp San Francisco and promises excellent insider insights from WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg and Google’s top blogger Matt Cutts who has been using the WordPress blogging format for several years.

This is the first major Twitter conference *ever* and is sure to bring a lot of interesting people and companies to the Computer Science Museum in Mountain View.

Hope to see you there in person or here at Technology Report’s live coverage of these events.

Live from Convergence08 Conference

Mountain View, California: Convergence08 conference.  Hundreds of people are gathering here at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View “Bringing Life to Big Ideas”.    The focus is on four core technologies and how they will change the world dramatically in the coming decades:   Infotech, Cogtech, Nanotech, and Biotech.

I’m especially interested in hearing from Peter Norvig, Google researcher and the guy who – literally – wrote the textbook on Artificial Intelligence.

So far the organization of this conference is very impressive though it’s not clear how many are attending.    The group keynote begins in about 20 minutes.
