Singularity is the first large-scale online web conference in the world.


Born in the mind of the Flash genius Aral Balkan, the event is scheduled for October 24-26th, 2008, with more than 100 of the worldÂ’s top web visionaries, developers, designers, thought leaders, and celebrities.

Last year, Aral asked his blog readers to promote the mysterious new brand. Shame on me for not having posted a badge before, but as i knew Aral’s work was mostly in the Flash arena, i was expecting something like a framework or some new Open Source project. But this blows my mind. It’s a huge one man effort, and skyrockets my respect for Aral as a true SOURCE OF INSPIRATION.

The sessions will be available to attendees for a period of six months, and later released under a Creative Commons license. It will take advantage of existing networks to get full community involvement (yeah, i follow you on Twitter, Aral).

And get inspired with this list of confirmed speakers:

  • Andy Budd
  • Ann McMeekin

Aral, the badge is now on the sidebar, but it would be great if you had also a countdown badge. How long do we have to wait until October?
