Dyson's final frontier?

8 March 2005

Happy international women's day! Here's a post about a succesful woman.

openDemocracy friend and entrepreneur Esther Dyson is holding a one day conference on space travel on March 23, the day after her annual PC Forum gathering. It's called Flight School, and its about launching commercial ventures into outer space.

""Nobody's holding a space conference, so I decided to do one," she said in an interview. "It's not that there aren't space conferences, but nothing as tacky and commercial as we want to be."

Esther is a member of the private-sector advisory board that is advising the Federal Aviation Administration on its Next Generation Air Transportation System National Plan.
