New_yorker_conference_2012 This has to be one of the most interesting events of the year - the first-ever New Yorker conference on innovation. The tab ($1,200), though, is a bit steep, unless there's a high probability of actually mingling with the likes of James Surowiecki (The Wisdom of Crowds), Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point, Blink), and David Remnick (Lenin's Tomb). Anyway, I'll see if I can weasel my way into the conference somehow.
