The New York Times > Technology > Cyberspace to Outer Space, Let's Have a Conference and Go There: "The diva of cyberspace is shedding her earthly ties.
Esther Dyson, who made a name for herself ballyhooing the Internet, has a new mission. In March, she will put on a conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., to discuss how best to send people to space - not using phone lines this time, but rocket ships. The gathering, called Flight School, is taking place at the same time as PC Forum, a technology conference that Ms. Dyson has organized since 1983.
If the final frontier seems a bit outside Ms. Dyson's expertise as a promoter of modern telecommunications, it does fall within what she does best - identify, promote and capitalize on the spirit of the age."
