Save the Date: Esther Dyson here July 9

Esther Dyson, alternately dubbed the First Lady (or the Court Jester) of the Internet, will speak at the Princeton Chamber’s Thursday, July 9

luncheon at the Princeton Marriott (609-924-1776). A world-renowned
writer, forecaster, and investor in emerging technologies, emerging
companies, and emerging markets, she grew up in Princeton and recently returned from five months training as a cosmonaut in Russia. Named by Forbes as one of the most powerful women in American business, she is the director of nine
start-ups and one publicly traded marketing conglomerate (WPP Group).
She will talk briefly about her varied interests — Silicon Valley,
genomes, Russia. and space — and answer questions about anything from
investment strategies to health care.
The venue: the Princeton Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, 100 College Road East, Plainsboro. The meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a networking reception followed by a buffet luncheon and the program at noon and will adjourn at 1:35 p.m. Cost to attend is $50. Reservations can be made at or by calling (609) 924-1776.

(For New Yorkers, the 10:01 NJ Transit would get you to Princeton Junction with time to spare. You could still make it if you took the 11:01 but youd find yourself at the end of the buffet line. The offpeak round trip is $20, pus a 10 minute taxi.)
Esther Dyson’s signature slogan, “Always Make New Mistakes,” is now sufficently famous that it has been made into a refrigerator magnet.
