The WWW Conference Improvised Conversation. Intellectual Jazz. No presentations. No schedule. For 10 minutes to 50 minutes. An actor and a playwright.

Richard Saul Wurman, creator of the TED (1984-2002), TEDMED (1995-2010) and the eg conferences (2006), celebrates improvised conversation in its most informative manner. Simply pairings of amazingly interesting individuals prompted by a question, generating a conversation. And so it will go – conversations interlaced with threads of improvised music. An astrophysicist and a microbiologist. A jazz

musician and a classical one. An energetic exploration of the lost art of conversing. Extraordinary individuals:
minds and musicians in improvised discourse

A live performance. A tablet app. The most innovative moments, the sparks of ideas, and fundamental truths come from conversations between two individuals. In the future, the truth will be our most valuable commodity. It is fitting that truth, a commodity that we most value and desire, is amazingly scarce. If among all the buttons on your remote control there was one button called truth, wouldn't you push that button? The WWW Conference is designed to metaphorically provide such a button and create a setting that will allow truth to be revealed. On 18-20 September 2012 The WWW Conference made its debut. The first W stands for World. Water Wealth Women Waste War Well-being Wildlife Web Weather Wind Words Wonder Witness Wilderness Work Wunderlust Warming Wizardry Wisdom Wit and the Waking Dream

The WWW Conference is the gathering of the greatest, most interesting and curious minds in the world engaged in immersive and improvised conversation. It celebrates the 21st century while drawing attention to the new patterns and convergences affecting our health and that of our planet.
