    Why limit yourself to isolated opinions in 10 point type? Instead, get a front-row seat as the techno-industry's leading (and most opinionated) visionaries rate and debate what the future holds for "the greater Silicon Valley."

    Be there when Red Herring's Editors Jason Pontin and Rafe Needleman take the ultimate editorial risk and publicly unveil their Top 10 Trends for 2002. They'll even throw in their infamous anti-trend prediction at no extra charge. Attendees will receive preview copies of the December issue of Red Herring.

    Jason Pontin says, "Explicitly predictive stories (in contrast to the covertly predictive stuff reporters normally write) are the preemptive military strikes of journalism. If you nail a prediction, you wipe out the competition. If you miss, you lose much of your authority."

    Will our noted industry pundits cheer or jeer these editors? Will the meeting transcripts include deleted expletives? Will a pasta fight erupt? With this panel, anything could happen. And we haven't even factored in our usual live audience of Silicon Valley's best and brightest--all with an opinion of their own.
