If you're in Silicon Valley, Al Gore (the environmentalist and almost-president that would have saved us a trillion dollars in the last 6 years, if <em>only</em> by not invading Iraq), John Doerr (a demigod among venture capitalists), and Jerry Yang (Yahoo founder) are speaking at an all-day summit next week on May 2.

They're are a bunch of other folks speaking as well, but these are the most recognizable names on the list. The topic is "China, Globalization, and the Shifting Global Power Equation". Here's the complete list of speakers. The cover is only ten bucks if you register today. It goes up to $20 tomorrow.

The event is sponsored by the Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association (HYSTA), a networking group for Chinese entrepreneurs in the valley. I'm pretty sure you don't have to be Chinese (or even Hapa like me) to attend, however. :-)

This is not a sponsored listing. I have no affiliation with HYSTA whatsoever, and will probably not be attending, if only because the day before (May 1) is my birthday and I plan to be pretty darn hungover that day.

If someone does go, please post a comment here or email me with the low-down.
