Dr. Koene presented a keynote at the Extreme Futurist Festival in Los Angeles,
December 21-22, 2012.
According to the Festival Web Site:
Extreme Futurist Festival is a 2 day arts and technology festival focusing on radical voices of the new evolution. Last year we had a great event and were called "a TED conference for the counterculture" by the LA Weekly. This year we seek to make XFF an even more epic experience. Terence McKenna predicted that December 21, 2012 would mark a great evolutionary shift in consciousness. It is now up to us to become that shift. We want to make this the 2012 event that people will talk about for years to come.
We will be focusing on cutting edge science and technology along with transgressive performance art and music. Showcasing the most innovative and subversive memetics of our time, we see to highlight an extreme future that breaks the formula of modern culture.
