I previously wrote about the BIL conference – which is an alternative to the high-end TED conference. I mentioned at the time that TED was already full (not to mention you have to invited and it cost 6,000 a year).

Well it turns out BIL is just as popular as they have already filled their 450 quota, but they are trying to secure sponsorship to be able to rent more space and accommodate more people. Despite them being ‘sold out’ I signed up and added my proposed talk. Will see if they can fit me in. Hope I find out soon so I try to get a decent travel deal.

    If you are signed up to give a talk you get in for sure. We’re out of ‘attendee’ spots, but have plenty of ‘speaker’ spots left.

    In reality there’s not a huge difference between speaker and attendee… but when it comes to counting people we can use that to our advantage.

    If you have any questions, let me know.
