I know I'm an outlier, as far as geography and attachment to the group, but that does not seem like a decision that can be made by one person.

I would assume there is a planning team, loosely defined though it may be that would consider such options.

It may indeed be that this presentation is too obscure to be of any general value, but I can see instances where an obscure technology and the story behind it has general implications.

Hello all,
Jason Scott and I would like to recommend Ed Smith, if he is available and
willing to talk.
He can be contacted through Benj Edwards.

Here is an article about him written by Benj:

Thanks, Eric

I'm aware of him, but as I told Jason privately, Ed would not good for
this role. The Imagination Machine is way too obscure to be the subject
of a keynote address.
