Chance to view ideaCity

Members of the University of Lethbridge community have an opportunity to view a national think-tank this week.

ideaCity 2010, Canada's premier meeting of the minds conference kicks off this year by taking digital convergence to new heights. Produced and presented by media visionary Moses Znaimer, the annual event of eclectic thinkers will be delivered as a high definition live video webcast over a next generation platform of Internet connectivity between participating Canadian universities and colleges.

Participants at the U of L will be able to view the event in the CAETL Learning Lab located in L1126 of the LINC building.

The sessions kick off Wednesday, June 16 at 6:30 a.m. and will proceed through to Friday afternoon.

ideaCity is an eclectic gathering of artists, adventurers, authors, cosmologists, doctors, designers, entertainers, filmmakers, inventors, magicians, musicians, scientists and technologists.

Fifty of the planet's brightest minds converge on Toronto each June to speak to a highly engaged audience. Only 700 are privileged to attend.

Produced and presented by Moses Znaimer, ideaCity is not themed around any one topic, issue or business. There are no scripted speeches or, breakout or parallel sessions. Rather, everyone is in one place and in on the same narrative.
