I am looking forward to a very dynamic program http://www.livingstonsecurities.com/livingston_conference/schedule.php on Monday. As this decade comes to a close, and this being the final Nanotechnology event of this decade, I decided to look back at a few 2000-2001 programs. The topics were very tutorial and elementary as compared to the topics we are discussing today.


I will be moderating a Water Infrastructure Panel from 2:30-3:15 with a group of Water gurus:

  • William Brennan, Chairman & CEO, Brennan Investment Partners
  • Kevin McGovern, Chairman, The Water Initiative
  • Philip H. Lippel, PhD, Nanotechnologist
  • Kevin M. Brophy, Meidlinger Partners, LLC

I am very interested in the Panel with David Arthur, CEO of SouthWest NanoTechnologies Inc. www.swentnano.com, a leading developer of carbon nanotubes for research and commercial use, from 3:45-4:30.

Arthur will participate on the Panel entitled “Rebuilding the World with Next Generation Materials” along with:

  • Moderator: Stanley Goos, Partner at Harris Beach LLC
  • John Andresakis of Mitsui International
  • Andrew Dreyer, Head of US Business Development for Mitsubishi
  • Paul Boulier, Chief Marketing Officer of A. Schulman & Co.

SouthWest NanoTechnologies Inc. (SWeNT) www.swentnano.com is a leading developer and manufacturer of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) and Specialty Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes. “We’re at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for commercial applications using carbon nanotubes,” explains SWeNT CEO Dave Arthur. “At the conference, I’ll be focusing on two examples: breakthrough ink technology that will enable energy efficient lighting, affordable solar devices, improved energy storage and printed electronics as well as smart fabric reinforcements to help rebuild and monitor our nation’s infrastructure. Our innovations in these and other emerging applications have us well positioned for significant growth in 2010.”


John Chiang, Controller of the State of California, will be our keynote speaker from 11:30-12:15

Charles Gasparino, Wall Street Investigative Reporter and Author of “The Sellout: How Three Decades of Wall Street Greed and Government Mismanagement Destroyed the Global Financial System,” currently a bestseller available on Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Sellout-Government-Mismanagement-Destroyed-Financial/dp/0061697168/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260038890&sr=8-1 or at all major bookstores, will be speaking after lunch at 1:45.

The final Keynote to wrap up our day’s activities will be Scott Livingston, CEO & Founder of Livingston Securities http://www.livingstonsecurities.com/index.php. Scott will be providing his vision on 2010. Happy Holidays. I look forward to seeing you in NYC on Monday.
