It's only natural that IdeaFestival caught the attention of Stephanie West Allen at Idealawg. From her post
Founded in 2000, the IdeaFestival is a world-class event that attracts diverse and leading thinkers from across the nation and around the globe to explore and celebrate innovation and cutting-edge ideas.
IdeaFestival is designed to stretch people's thinking, utilizing multiple venues to showcase and discuss important ideas in science, the arts, design, business, film, technology, education, etc.
The Festival is designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of people - and presenters are selected for their ideas and accomplishments, and their ability to communicate to a wide-ranging audience.
Last year was the first year that Louisville, Kentucky hosted the event and I learned about it too late to attend. That will not happen this year. The dates of September 13-15, 2007 have been on my calendar since last September.
