Live at Pop!Tech 10

Today is the first day of Pop!Tech, a three-day conference featuring the most creative, innovative and dangerous thinkers on the planet.

Yahoo has a giant satellite truck out front of the quaint Opera House here in Camden, Maine. They are beaming the audio and video of the presentations and musical performances directly to Houston, parsing the files and streaming to viewers on-line in real-time.

This morning you can listen presentations for free by such luminaries as musicisn Brian Eno, the inventor of SimCity Will Wright, columnist Tom Freidman and futurist Kevin Kelly.

I'll be inside the Opera House, with a mobile paint studio set up way up in the loge seats producing large graffiti works for each speaker. All paintings created during the conference can be seen on MissingLink at:
