99% Conference

99%THIS JUST IN: tickets for the 99% Conference May 2012 at Time Square are now on sale.

For anyone unfamiliar with this event here’s their description:

It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.

Taking its moniker from the famous Thomas Edison quote “Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration,” the 99% Conference represents a shift in focus. Unlike the other conferences that focus purely on ideas and inspiration, the 99% is all about ACTION.

For two days each year, we bring together some of the world’s most productive creative visionaries to offer a behind-the-scenes look at their processes as they share road-tested insights on pushing ideas forward.

Finally, an event that is focused on action and not a bunch of talking heads lecturing to a roomful of listening heads.  The tickets are pricey so if anyone plans on coughing up the pocket change to attend please share what you learned with the rest of us who were unable to scrounge together the ticket fee.

And if anyone on the 99% Conference committee is reading this and wants to give us a 99% discount, that would be 99% awesome.
