I guess it takes a year to figure out all the conferences you want to go to because I keep hearing about all the conferences I want to go to after its too late to go. This time it's foo camp and bar camp I'm missing out on.
What about the upcoming Web 2.0 Conference or the "We Media: Behold the Power of Us" conference by The Media Center taking place in NYC?
Both are happening on the weekend of Oct. 5th.
I applied for a fellowship at The Media Center conference, and you should as well if you're interested: http://www.mediacenter.org/content/p6953_c1935.cfm

I'm supposed to be on a panel at Taking Liberties: Freedom, Creativity and Risk in the Media Arts in Philly - it sounds pretty cool. But it doesn't have that mind-meld geek factor you're looking for. :-)
