*Dear Friend of the Jefferson Club:
I've registered for the Cato Conference. I hope to see you there. Our friend Peter Thiel will be speaking there.Earlier this year, Global Crossing’s Gary Winnick astounded the world by turning a $15 million investment into $1 billion in just 18 months. He became the fastest billionaire in history, and one of the first mainstream investors to cash in on the cyber-revolution. But wealth at light-speed is just one of the remarkable changes we witness in our high-tech society. From finance and communications to biology and law, advances in technology are transforming our world. The challenge for citizens in the 21st century will be mastering dynamic change in free and diverse markets. Scholars, entrepreneurs, and scientists will consider the implications of the knowledge revolution: Strong Crypto, Smart Cell Phones, and the End of Monetary Sovereignty • Education for a High-Tech World • Resolving Disputes in the New Economy • Spread Spectrum • Regulating the Frontiers of Science: Will Mutant Plants Run Amok? • Competition in Domain Name Space • The Science of Small: Nanotech & Molecular Switches
