A call for Geeks and Gurus:  The Wisdom2.0 conference takes place April 30-May 2, Silicon Valley, California.

Is it possible to use online and mobile technologies with mindfulness, meaning, and wisdom? Soren Gordhamer thinks it is. What’s more, he’s hosting a three-day event dedicated to this topic.
