Hi Wei Dai,

I saw your everything list, and wanted to post an event there, but I am not a 
member, and even if I became one would just be a newbie.
So if you feel like this is appropriate to your list, please post it!

The H+ Summit @Melbourne is Coming to Town (25-26th June 2011)! The H+ Summit @ 
Melbourne brings together an eclectic mix of rationalists, futurists, science 
fiction writers, AI experts, scientists, biotechnology experts, philosophers 
and theorists to pursue deep philosophical, scientific and technological 
inquiry, with the aim of being able to discern those changes which are likely 
to have profound impacts and those which are merely transient and or 

Technological innovation permeates all aspects of society — from tiny water 
purification packets and 3d printers, to GPS tracking devices, wearable smart 
devices, decision support systems, replaceable body parts and personal genome 
tests. Because technology and society evolve together, it has become 
increasingly important to develop a greater understanding of how technology is 
shaping the course of our lives. We are faced with the challenge to 
continuously become innovative in harnessing and controlling technological 
development as it accelerates on many diverse fronts. The "pioneers of the 
future" are faced with the necessity to become ever more resourceful. Even the 
most conservative thinkers agree that we have already stepped into an era of a 
profound change. The good news is that our human diversity continues to spawn 
both inventiveness and novelty.

This conference is brought to you by Humanity+ @ Melbourne (Victoria, 
Australia). Humanity+ explores how society might use and profit from a variety 
of creative and innovative thought. Join us for this adventurous journey into
