Hello everybody,
I've registered last year, 
I saw a amazing event, i really enjoyed to be part as a member in front of my computer, the performances, the chat, the questions... Thank you Louis de Matos to bring this to the magic community.
This year i'm very happy to be a speaker. Let me show you my first lecture, i have so many ideas to share with you. Not only about my CDs & Balls manipulation act but also the process of creation that use and much more...
Trust me, you have to book the three days for this event. Don't miss the HD magic coming in your home this year. Invite your friends, book your pizzas and enjoy!

A message from Eric Mead

To subscribers of EMC and the curious:
Eric Mead here, and I'm happy to report that I've been invited back to speak again at EMC 2011. 
You might think that I agreed to come back again because it's fun. You would be partially correct, as the first EMC was a delightful three days. Not only the "on camera" talks and real time interaction with attendees through the internet, but we laughed told stories and shared magic during the downtime between sessions--and it was really a great time I'm thrilled to repeat. 
But the real reason I'm returning is that I feel something important is going on here. Luis and his team are pioneering something new for magic. A truly world wide magic convention and conversation that is delivered to you through technology, instead of you having to come to it. It's an idea being explored in many fields, from business and science, to social interests and family gatherings, and everything in between. In times past magic was often on the forefront of cutting edge technology, but has fallen behind in most of the important areas. So I believe what Luis and his team are doing is important, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it at the beginning--when no one, including the EMC creators and staff, can yet see what it will evolve into. 
The other thing that pushed me to return was the great variety of speakers and topics in 2010, and how magic was treated seriously as an academic, artistic, and creative art. There were heady talks about magic theory, talks that explored method and secrets, talks about the business and commercial side of magic, and even presentations aimed at pure fun and entertainment. I loved the swirling pool of ideas we swam in, and the palpable conviction that magic is not trivial, but something to be respected, and shared with a sense of import and importance. 
My suspicion is that 20 years from now this kind of exchange will be commonplace. For now though, as it is in its infancy, I'm proud to be a part of EMC. I hope you'll join us on this journey, and participate fully with us as we explore the art of magic together in this new and exciting way.
