Welcome to BIL


We have great news:



We have reached our limit of people.


There is limited space, and these are the rules handed down to us by the building supers.  If your name is not already on the Attendee list as of Friday, 10:00 a.m., you may be turned away.  If you have any questions, please e mail Todd Huffman at HuffmanTM@gmail.com
Please sign up early for the next BIL, to be planned soon. 




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


  • MeshWalks - A series of small, walking conferences/discussions/tours through the lovely Monterey Beach and El Estero Park. See MeshWalk's blog for more detail and history of the format
  • BIL: Satellite - We're renting classrooms 1/8 mile away, and if we've got more participants 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.
