The Institute for Accelerating Change is a California 501(c)3 non-
profit (application pending) established in 2003. IAC is actively
helping people to realize the implications of and to prepare for
accelerating technological change. IAC accomplishes this through
conferences, newsletters, gatherings, reading groups, media
projects, educational programs, and our sense of community. IAC has
adopted this purpose because we believe increasing the overall
understanding of accelerating change improves the quality of choices
individuals make, and, in turn, the quality of choices that we make
as a community.
Joining with IAC is Foresight Institute, a California 501(c)3 non-
profit organization dedicated to helping the world prepare for
molecular nanotechnology. Foresight Institute will receive a portion
of the proceeds from this event.
