Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas 

When: Fri., Oct. 25, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 26, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2013
Price: $390
For all the brainiacs, boldfaced names, and big thinkers crammed into the few square miles that is Berkeley, it’s kind of shocking there isn’t already a large-scale, wide-ranging TED-style conference in full swing there already. But here we are, and here comes Uncharted, a two-day “ideas festival” that’s being organized by the hyperlocal blog Berkeleyside at various locations in downtown Berkeley, and which is set to feature speakers including Reuters finance blogger Felix Salmon; National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell; Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas; cookbook author Mollie Katzen; UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks; and dozens more luminaries from the tech, political, activism, and arts worlds. A small warning: All these big names don’t come cheap, but admission to Friday night’s event is included in the price of admission, and scholarships are available.
