The 2009 event taking place 14-15 May in Newcastle already boasts a thought-provoking line-up of speakers including Johnny Chung Lee the man who makes Wii remotes do things that'll boggle your mind as well as the return of Dan Lyons who found fame as Fake Steve Jobs and could easily carve out a career in stand-up.

She will talk about her company's ground-breaking work in creating a headset interface that allows you to control your computer with signals coming directly from your brain. It's science fiction minus the fiction. Goodbye QWERTY keyboard! You don't want to miss her talk. • We've also received confirmation from three other great speakers whose names we'll be announcing in the next week. Go to for the low-down on our latest recruits. • Due to popular demand we're happy to announce the addition of three pre-conference workshops on Wednesday 13 May.
