    (Ping me if you want to present or need tickets as I have a couple to give out) The EFTF Conferences first event in San Francisco. Lots of Lightning Rounds by industry luminaries, and local technologists on the future of technology. Profits from the conference will be donated to a Non-Profit focused using technology to help humanity through the use of new and emerging technology. This conference is about the future of technology, networking and how we can help each other with a holistic approach. Come join the conversation and the futurist trends and technology. There will be an after party but the location is still TBD (tickets for the party are seperate then general admission). This time we have an exciting device bar and personal technology bar from watchs to cybernetic implants or just to plug in your personal hardware. We have done device bars before but this is really taking it to the next level with displays, bleeding edge hardware, historical displays and more. Some of most exciting equipment that is part of the bar is the actual cybernetic implants, HoloLens, tDCS, and numerous other great wearable technology displays showing our deeply personal relationship with technology. Attendee's will become named authors of the Extreme Futures Technology and Forecasting Journal 2016 edition Imagine a book that predicts the future of technology that evolves with time, trends with unprecedented accuracy designed for technologies, futurists and other analyst. The compilation will come out each year. Contributors will get a copy each year they participate where other’s will have to purchase them. All Contributors are named and contribute by attending the various Extreme Futures Technology and Forecasting Conferences where everyone will be contributing to activities we will do during the conference as part of the agenda including the technology forecasting exercise based on the Futures Squares methodology, study group role playing simulations and workshops based on techniques done with DARPA and the US Military and government but this time open to the public w/o government or other oversight skewing results.
