I just find it interesting that the event is scheduled for St. Crispin's Day -- is that a reference to "we few, we happy few, we band of brothers", OR to "half a league, half a league, half a league ahead" -- or total indifference by Singularity experts on the subject of ancient battles which happened to inspire great English poets?-)

"Before anyone posts any angry comments: yes, the registration costs actual money this year."

For comparison: The Singularity Summit at Stanford cost $110K, all of which was provided by SIAI and sponsors. Singularity Summit 2007 undoubtedly cost more, and only $50K of that was raised through ticket sales. All ticket purchases for SS08 will be matched 2:1 by Peter Thiel and Brian Cartmell.

> All ticket purchases for SS08 will be matched 2:1 by Peter Thiel and Brian Cartmell.

Thanks for mention. Some inaccuracies: SS08 registrations matched 1:2 by two donors at any time (every dollar given matched by two dollars). Matching donor list forthcoming. Includes Thiel (not Cartmell at this time), among others.

TANSTAAFL.

I'm not sure that makes much sense in this context, because you were offering a free lunch last year...
