At 7:00 pm we will Welcome our very special guest speaker -
Peter Scott, President of Chosin Chatters and incoming Area 4 Director.

Peter is a dynamic, compelling, engaging, speaker -- who captures his audiences attention from the outset, Peter's special presentation "Rave New World" is not to be missed.

Following this special presentation, there will be a networking break, followed by a DEBATE between the Students and the Toastmasters over "Do young smart Millenniums make better workers than older Boomers" with Audience participation from both the In-Person and Online attendees.

Peter Scott is literally a rocket scientist. He has worked for NASA for over thirty years, doing so remotely from his home in Metchosin for over half of that time, where you'd find him surrounded by computer screens and a high-speed Internet connection. Over the years he has written computer books and taught courses on programming. But he leads a double life as a business coach with a certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. He is also a local Toastmaster and the incoming Director for the Western Communities Area. He lives in Metchosin with his wife and two daughters. His latest book is "Crisis of Control: How Artificial SuperIntelligences May Destroy or Save the Human Race" (http://humancusp.com/book1). It draws on his dual backgrounds to show how exponentially advancing computers pose existential threats to the human race that can be avoided through a partnership between technologists and human development experts. The reward for succeeding will be a stunning utopian age aided by advanced artificial intelligence.
