UN-CONFERENCE PROGRAMMING TO BE AVAILABLE AT REVISION3.COM —
San Francisco, CA – February 2, 2009 – Internet Television leader Revision3 announced today that it will stream the BIL 2009 conference live at www.revision3.com/bil, giving the network’s Internet-savvy audience exclusive access to BIL’s original programming live as it happens, through a partnership with Revision3 and its hosting partner BitGravity. The TED-inspired un-conference begins immediately after TED ends – February 7-8, 2009 – in Long Beach, Calif.
“If you don’t get invited to the super-exclusive and expensive TED conference, you’ll have to spend a kilobuck to see the live stream – otherwise you’ll have to wait weeks and months to see what happened,” said Jim Louderback, CEO, Revision3. “Since BIL is the everyman’s TED, it made perfect sense for Revision3 and our friends at BitGravity to bring it to everyone around the world, free of charge and live while it happens.”
BIL is an open, self-organizing, emergent arts, science, society and technology conference for people changing the world in big ways. It is a place for passionate people to come together to energize, brainstorm and take action. For more information, visit http://bilconference.com/.
