John Brockman’s ‘third culture’ forum, Edge, has some great coverage of SciFoo ‘08. Contributions from Frank Wilczek, Betsy Devine, George Dyson and Lee Smolin. Here’s Frank:
SciFoo is a conference like no other. It brings together a mad mix from the worlds of science, technology, and other branches of the ineffable Third Culture at the Google campus in Mountain View. Improvised, loose, massively parallel—it’s a happening. If you’re not overwhelmed by the rush of ideas then you’re not paying attention.
