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.”
