TTI/Vanguard: Fieldtrip to PARC

TTI Vanguard: Shifts Happen conference

25 February 2010
various PARC locations



New technologies and applications are creating new imperatives, from research and development, to printing and software distribution, to media and content creation, and beyond. In this conference, we’ll explore how upheavals caused by the adoption of networked technologies might affect organizations and entire industries. We’ll examine some of the new digital economics (and economies) that we will inevitably encounter. Where will the control points be, and what are the big risks for large-scale systems and new players? What’s being created, what’s being remade, and what’s being reinvented?

full conference agenda


TTI/Vanguard is the advanced technology conference series for senior-level executives. We introduce, discuss, and evaluate emerging and breakthrough technologies on the two-to-five-year horizon. Through conferences, workshops, and field trips, experts offer perspectives on future technologies and their impact on organizations, infrastructures, policies, and society. The result is a framework for linking strategic technology planning to business success.

TTI/Vanguard is about discovering technological possibilities for the 21st century. Five times annually, corporate and government leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers, and academicians come together to envision the future's future technologically. In highly interactive sessions, led by a world-class Advisory Board—John Perry Barlow, Gordon Bell, Peter Cochrane, Deborah Estrin, Eric Haseltine, Michael Hawley, Alan Kay, Leonard Kleinrock, Douglas Lenat, Robert Lucky, Nicholas Negroponte and David Reed—and today's most influential thought leaders, debate is stimulated, and breakthrough ideas flourish.

TTI/Vanguard member organizations represent global private, public, and academic sectors. Members are senior-level business and technology executives with responsibility for creating and implementing strategic technological change within their organizations.
