Event Info





The fall 2011 festival is tech·knowledgē. It's 'technology' with 'knowledge' at its center. Human experience is inextricably linked to technology. At its root is the impulse to craft a better, easier, more informed life. From the creation of stone tools to the development of the printing press, the assembly line, and the microprocessor, technology is the expression of human ingenuity and a catalyst for the next big idea.

How has technological innovation shaped history and human creativity? Join us as leading thinkers of all stripes wrestle with big questions.
