Welcome to BIL


TED2008 opens. Join them live Thursday evening, February 28.


Live Webcast of TED winners this year




The main room only holds 150 people, and we've got more than that registered.  This is one of those good problems.  We are organizing additional spaces for people to interact and learn.


BIL Activities

  • Mobile Conferences - We'll be doing walking / talking tours through the lovely Monterey Beach and El Estero Park.
  • BIL: Sattelite - We're renting classrooms 1/8 mile away, and if we've got more speakers than space we'll have talks here.
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium -  There will be discussion groups in the aquarium, a great place for inspiration and wonderment.


To maximize your comfort please bring the items listed on the BILDERS TOOLKIT. Be nice, and have a blast!




There is no WiFi at the facility, right now we'll be using cell phones/cards WiFi for internet coverage. If you can help get a faster connection, please e mail superphly -at- gmail.com.


Qtask will be providing one of these Wireless Cell cards + Wireless Routers

BIL loves TED. TED is a great place to sit and listen to interesting ideas. Many of those ideas make it online, and millions get to experience them.


The catch for many of us is that TED is $6,000, which is too expensive for most people, including a great number with good ideas worth spreading.


BIL has been created as a free space for people with ideas to come together and share them. Our event is self-organizing, emergent, and anarchic. Nobody is in charge. If you want to come just show up. If you've got an idea to spread start talking. If someone is saying something good, stop and listen.


We think BIL can be a perfect match to TED.



Participate in the BIL Social Graph Experiment online


The goal of the BIL Social Graph Experiment is to create a map of how news about the BIL conference is flowing through various formal and informal social networks. We will be sharing the results as part of a presentation during the BIL conference (more information here). Help us gather data by filling out a very brief survey today!


Here is some sample data of what we have collected so far. Help expand the graph by filling out the survey.
