Contact is a working festival of innovation where the net's leading minds and entrepreneurs can connect with the people who are building the social technologies of tomorrow. The net of the future will not be fueled by ads, but by people solving real problems through distributed, peer-to-peer solutions. This is dormant promise of the Internet, finally coming to fruition.

The content of the day will be organized along four main tracks: 

Technology and Society
Business and Economics
Arts & Learning

But instead of sitting and listening to speeches and panels of world-renowned experts (something we can do just as well online) participants will have the chance to task innovators and experts with their own challenges. Ask Dennis Crowley (the founder of Foursquare) to evaluate your location-based technology. Have Clay Shirky consider the implications of your social strategy. Invite Eli Pariser (founder of MoveOn.org) to improve the effectiveness of your campaigning tool. Yes, they're all coming.

The Tomorrow Project

The Tomorrow Project is focused on being the best possible public partner for leading companies in the Social Construct. Companies have a range of requirements they can't accomplish entirely on their own. We are here to help. Among those requirements are unique and powerful public events like Pivot and market-making professional in-gatherings like Social Week.
