There is a lot of activity happening. I wanted to let you all know about the Earth Day Digital Be-In happening on April 22 at SOMARTS in San Francsico (934 Brannon).
It is going to be a wonderful event that moves from a Networking social hour put on by the Urban Alliance for Sustainability to the Planet Code Symposium that Planetwork and imaginify pulled together into an evening of Eco-Activiation - transformative art music and inspiring speakers. There will be a Green Frontier Exhibition with number of green and sustainable projects presenting their work in an exhibit. Join us in a true fusion of Northern California culture, art and technology.
Here is a video that gives you some sense of the groove of the day.

Green Frontier Exhibition
Formerly known as the Digital Frontier, this edition of the Be-In will feature the â€œGreen Frontierâ€ â€“ emphasizing the new initiatives, projects and products that are leading the way to a green economy and sustainable culture. In addition to paid sponsor exhibits, the Be-In each year invites a range of groups whose causes or products are worthy of broader exposure. The Green Frontier is a lively forum where leading technology creators can meet and exchange ideas with sophisticated users and professionals. It is also a place to expose forward-thinking ideas and initiatives to a community that is in the business of changing the world through evolutionary technology and social innovations. The Digital Be-In is well known as a catalyst to influence trends, spawn important ideas, create alliances, and showcase creative possibilities. The Green Frontierâ€”at the event and on the ongoing Be-In websitesâ€”is where the tribes gather and connect.
