The summit is rather a big deal in some circles. We'll be coming back to this over the next three days-tomorrow they have a Fireside Chat with Elon Musk and Steven Chu, PhD.

*Arthur C.Clarke's three laws:
- When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
