The folks over at Pop!Tech recently announced their conference theme and speakers for Pop!Tech 2008. This years theme: Scarcity and Abundance. As they describe it: “This year, we will pay particular attention to the 21st century dynamics between systems based on scarcity and those based on abundance, in areas ranging from digital social networks to environmentalism, from biology to business, from peacemaking to politics. We’ll chart the core scarcities that humanity will face in this century, and how a wealth of new innovations, new bottom-up approaches to collaboration, and new insights into collective wisdom might hold the key to addressing them.”

One of this years many noted speakers is Jessica Flannery the co-founder of Kiva.org, one of Nau’s Partner For Change organizations.

Visit their website for a full lineup of this year’s speakers, more information on the Pop!Tech community or to watch the Pop!Casts of past presentations.

    Ian, thanks much for helping to spread the gospel about Pop!Tech — particularly our 2008 event, with the theme of scarcity and abundance. Just one note of clarification, Jessica Flannery actually spoke last year (Pop!Tech 2007). Anyone can check out her talk here:
