TAICON 2005 Conference Postponed; Comdex Cancelled

The Arlington Institute's TAICON 2005 conference, "Tools for the Development of Humanity," to have been held April 25-27 in Washington DC, has been postponed indefinitely. The Institute cites "serious logistical problems" as the reason for the postponement, but says it will reschedule later this year. This comes on the heels of yesterday's report that Comdex -- once the gold standard for technology shows -- has been cancelled for a second year in a row.
