The Future of Space & Time

And we’re back! Happy 2010 to all. We hope your having a good start to your New Year. FLM has lot’s in store for 2010. Look out for for some big announcements over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, we’re happy to be working in conjunction with Social Media Week (more info below) and Wired magazine hosting, The Future of Space & Time. The event is SOLD OUT (sorry!), however it will be lived streamed. Additionally, there are over 60+ events taking place in NYC and other events in Berlin, London, San Francisco, Toronto and São Paul. Don’t miss out!

Moderator:
John C. Abell, New York Bureau Chief for Wired.com

Panelists:
Tony Jebara, Associate Professor Computer Science, Columbia University & Chief Scientist at Sense Networks
Chris Dixon, Co-founder, CEO at Hunch
Denis Crowley, Founder and CEO of Foursquare

If you’re not familiar with Social Media Week, it’s a week long ‘barcamp style’ conference taking place simultaneously in multiple cities around the world. The aim of each event is to advance the use and understanding of social media in the corporate, public and non-profit sectors.

From the site:
"The second annual conference will take place between February 1st – 5th, 2010 simultaneously in New York City, Berlin, London, San Francisco, Toronto and São Paulo. The five day conference will explore the profound impact that social media has on culture, business communications and society at large.

Social Media Week organizers and local partners will plan some of the events, however just as in 2009, the local business community has been invited to add their own events to the program to broaden the scope and diversity of the conference.”
