Featured speakers include law professor Lawrence Lessig, who discusses the future of remix; Google’s Peter Norvig, who examines the cutting edge of search technology; and TiVo principal engineer Arthur van Hoff, who looks at television as an operating system and the video content that can be delivered via it.

One tutorial unit is $245 and two are $445; an exhibit hall pass is $75. On Feb. 1, those prices go up to $1,540, $1,240, $295, $495 and $100 and stay there until the conference starts, at which time everything will cost $100 more except the exhibit hall passes, which will remain $100.
