Program Overview

Through powerful plenaries, High Order Bits (muscular, highly concentrated fifteen-minute presentations on projects and ideas from technology innovators that will stir your mind, heart, and/or soul), spirited discussions, and focused drill-down sessions, ETech detects and amplifies the first ripples in waves of technology on the move.

Just some of the themes you'll find reflected in this year's ETech program are: The grand vision of web services is morphing into the more useful--and profitable--goals of providing alternate interfaces to data and services. Social networking services are groping for more dimensions of value. Wireless meshes made of small devices continue to accelerate decentralization. Mobile devices of many forms and functions now inhabit desktops, pockets, and cars. Hackers have discovered the joys of cracking open devices to prod and mod, using cheap, off-the-shelf technology.
