VERGE SF 2014 is out of the oven, ready for this year´s consumption.
The gurus of content and events have managed to cross sustainability´s leading edge Thought Leaders with a Technology Showcase "Interconnect-EXPO" like none other via "Gamification of Everything" ( Gabe Zichermann's talk title from last year taken to heart to the max with this year´s networking community). The Interconnect-EXPO is powered by its own MicroGrid inside the Palace Hotel San Francisco with non-trivial live demos that the SF Exploratorium might find worthy to covet.
Get Ready Congressional politicians - We the People are juiced to Design Think-Integrate ourselves out of the proverbial box to tap into the non-GHG energy sources all around us. Thank you in advance for working with us to escalate incentives for any and all that take their neighborhood or Town Hall to full Zero Net Energy.
The new Sustainability is Zero Net Energy. A sampling of the event´s many Tutorials will be, in fact on Monday at 1:30 p.m. Check it out and more here:

Lisa Jackson, past Head of the EPA, now of Apple Computer brings us to speed on Apple´s environmental initiatives as the summary talk on Thursday.
