Embedded Conference Special Events Keynote Speaker: Al Gore THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF TECHNOLOGY Tuesday, April 3 . 11:00AM - 12:00pm
Consistently an active leader in technology, Vice President Gore discusses technological advancement and the potential of user involvement. He identifies key opportunities and challenges, charting a new digital society.
Al Gore was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993. He is an active leader in technology and telecommunications and is keenly focused on global warming. His pioneering efforts to protect the earth's ozone layer and to clean up toxic-waste dumps were outlined in his bestselling book Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit. Vice President Al Gore has once again emerged front and center on the national and international stage with the response to both his bestselling book and major motion picture based on it, entitled An Inconvenient Truth.
Sure enough, it's the Heroic Noble Leader Al... suntanned, virile, squinting into the sunlight: visionary, seeing the future, guiding the Little People towards a better fate.
Leni Reifenstahl couldn't have posed him better. I'm not being hyperbolic at all: this pose was a signature of Reifenstahl's, even referenced in her obituary in the New York Times: "heroic poses of Hitler shot from well below eye level."
Call it "Triumph of the Al", then.
You'll be seeing more of this photo. It caught my attention two years ago when I first saw it plastered on a lamp-post in San Francisco. Recognizing it for what it was, it chilled me to the bone-- and it just keeps popping up more and more. Get used to it.
He invented the Internet you know.
ping, and bring all your Future Tech and Silicon Valley friends
Another big speech at the same conference will be by someone from Orange County Choppers.
Lemmee guess which will be better attended.
Gore invented the embedded system.
"He invented the Internet you know."
And now, according to the article, "he's an active leader in technology and telecommunications". Wow! How does he have the time to be so "active" when he must be inventing the latest cooling technology, because as we all know, we're going to fry!
Al Gore will the the 2008 DemocRat nominee. Mark my words.
He is the only candidate who can unite the loony left moonbat wing of the DemocRat party with the pragmatic stealth-socialist Gramsciian/Clintonian wing.
Keep in mind that money is the mother's-milk of politics, and Al Gore has more than the rest of the candidates combined, thanks to his Google options. And it's all personal money, and it's on top of daddy's considerable Occidental Petroleum bag-money. So there are no strictures to how he spends it.
And he doesn't have to spend it. He's about to get an Oscar and quite possibly a Nobel Peace Prize. He gets all the media attention he wants. He keynotes at geekfests and he bloviates on Oprah. He's fresh off of six years of conditioning and practice and image-building. No more awkward Al. No more image-of-the-week Al: khaki Al, earth-tones Al, roll-of-quarters-stuffed-in-his-briefs Al, roid-rage Al, painted harpy Al. No: Heroic Al. Visionary Al. Right-all-along Al.
Just watch, as the DemocRat primary turns into a circular firing squad and he floats above the fray. Just watch, as der Hildebeast limps into the convention, bloodied and battered and tattered and tired. Just watch, as Heroic Al rides in on a white horse to seize the nomination by acclimation. Just watch, as he chooses Eliot Spitzer, "Mr. Anti-Corruption", as his running-mate, signaling a clean break from the seaminess of the Clinton years.
He'll be unstoppable. Heroic Al.
Looks like it was about 40-50 lbs. ago...
I would love to see this scmuck quizzed on his actual technological knowledge. I'll bet he knows very little about technology other than a few buzz words and convenient, we need to share the technology, egalitarian B.S.
He identifies key opportunities and challenges, charting a new digital society.
"There they go and I must catch them, for I am their Leader"
Al Gore - laying claim to everything he can see with his 20/20 hindsight.
The Dem party is 60%+ female and they want Hillary now!
No way can Gore beat her.
We can only hope Gore is the Green Party nominee and splits the socialist vote.
"He's on the boards of Google and Apple. Which doesn't mean much... boards are often stupendously passive affairs, but it certainly looks good on a resume. He's also got some next-generation media thing down in L.A., what was its name, oh yeah: Current. Don't underestimate this guy."
Another reason to not use Google and Apple. The only way anyone can underestimate Al is if their imagination can't go that far downward. He knows no "low". And yes, we know he's out here in Lost Angeles, because it's been really cold...in fact, it snowed near Malibu. Wherever Al goes to spew his propoganda about Global Warming, it snows. Just one more moonbat for LA.
It'll be interesting to watch all the moral democrats running for president. Kind of like a cage fight. Why didn't Gore win his home state? What do they know that the general public doesn't?
