PostSubject: Buddhist Geeks Conference - FREE Video on-line of full conference, Aug 9-11   Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:46 am

The Buddhist Geeks conference is taking place in Boulder, Colorado, August 9-11. You can watch all the videos from the conference FOR FREE. You just have to register I believe. I don't think there are any catches. As I read this, it seems like they will be posting videos all the sessions a few days after the conference ends, so it won't be LIVE per se.

I enjoy many of their podcasts.

So I pass this along.

The Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012
August 9–11, 2012
One FREE video event


Not Your Normal Buddhist Conference

Discover the emerging new faces of Buddhism at the Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012 via live video streaming.

It’s an opportunity to explore the leading-edge frontiers of Buddhism, technology, and global culture. This year’s gathering brings together luminaries in the fields of Buddhism, science, philosophy, education, business, politics, and more. Participants will explore how the dharma is co-evolving with modern insights and trends to change our lives—personally and globally—in extraordinary and unexpected ways.

As Buddhist Geeks co-founder Vincent Horn describes it: “Some Buddhist events can be boring and predictable and tend to draw on the same group of speakers again and again. When we launched the conference last year, we wanted to create one with a completely fresh and innovative format, in which we could explore new topics in new ways. Feedback was very enthusiastic. This year’s conference in Boulder, Colorado, will build on what people liked the best from last year, while adding exciting new elements. We hope you’ll be joining us!”

Your live video streaming pass, available here exclusively through Sounds True, gives you up-close coverage of all featured events. Can’t make a live session? Don't worry! Recordings from live sessions will be available by 7 pm Eastern Time (GMT -4), two business days after the conference concludes.

What past attendees are saying
“The inaugural conference had incredible energy!”

“After spending over 35 years in the business world and often attending various conferences, I’d say the Buddhist Geeks Conference was one of the best I’ve ever attended.”

“Stunned, floored, amazed by how wonderful it was, especially for a first-time event.”

In the Press
“What's a Buddhist Geek? It's someone with an interest in technology and Buddhist wisdom who wants to figure out how to use technology to reinvent a thousands-year-old spiritual practice to be more accessible, more relevant and easier to integrate into our lives.” - Wired

“Geekery could bring a radical heart and soul to the 21st century.” - The Guardian

“It's become a community, maybe even a sangha. And there's no app for that.” - Tricycle

“Vincent Horn is representative of a new kind of American Buddhist: young, U.S.-born converts who have intertwined their religious practice with a certain 21st century techie sensibility.” - Los Angeles Times

“Call it the new New Age. Fifteen years after Steve Jobs first extolled the beauty of a beginner's ability to think without preconceptions, the business world is more enamored than ever with ancient Eastern principles. As this L.A. conference helps attendees find inner peace, five business leaders share how they're bringing mindfulness — sati in Buddhist terms — back to the workplace.” -FastCompany

“[T]hese Buddhist Geeks are epically smart, truly engaged professionals who are genuinely concerned about the future of compassion, awareness and enlightenment.” - LA Weekly

Actually, I think that the conference is being streamed live for free --- and probably also archived. So if you want to plug in, you just need to sign up. This weekend.

The video sessions of the Buddhist Geeks conference from last month are now available to watch on line for free. I think you need to register with your email address, etc. and then log in. So this page below might not work directly, but if you bounce around a bit I am sure you can figure out how to register and watch.

Another way to access the videos is to go to the Buddhist Geeks page for registering for next years conference - and there is a link to live streaming from this year's conference - and if you click on that - that might work. It would be better if they made this process a bit clearer.
