    Intriguing!

    Erik, is this an annual event? If so, about how many people attend, and are there more English than Amish in attendance? I’m guessing local hotels/motels must fill fast.

    Since it’s international, how many folks attend from other countries—how is an Amish Technology Conference of interest to them? As always, just curious(“curiouser & curiouser”).

      Alice Mary this is actually the first time this particular technology-oriented conference has been held. There have been other large Amish-themed conferences at the Young Center, for instance in 2007 and also last year (Forgiveness Conference). I expect there will be a good bit of interest in this one.

      That’s still being nailed down but I believe there will be a press release not too far down the line with more details re: speakers and topics.

    Are you speaking there, Erik?

    I don’t suppose this conference will affect any church orders the way a similar conference might effect say the Catholic Church, or something like that, would it?

      It’s not related to church matters but more of an academia/research type conference. At present I’m not sure if I will be able to be there or not. I wouldn’t be surprised if some Amish people attended.

    “Amish Technology” almost sounds like an oxymoron !

    Sounds like it will be a very interesting conference. We need more scholarly information on appropriate use of technology and how different communities approach it. And I like the idea of an academic conference that combines reporting on academic research with actual field trips, perhaps to see the very things being reported on.

    Og, click on the link at the bottom of Erik’s post for answers to all your questions. This is an academic conference. Those from the general public with an interest in Plain peoples and technology can attend, but this is not a trade show or vending opportunity.
