ITIF Breakfast Forum with David Brin: “Progress and Innovation: Can We Restore Faith in the Future?”

Most civilizations have looked back to a golden age when things were better. In contrast, America has emphasized self-improvement aimed at a vague, but much better tomorrow. Are we reverting to the older view of time? One that resists innovation and the notion of progress? Or can a “frontier” mentality and America’s innovation leadership be restored?

Please join us for a provocative forum with award-winning scientist and science fiction writer David Brin to explore this critical issue.

Date: Thursday, April 30, 2009
Time: 9:00 AM- 10:30 AM
Place: The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (map and directions)
