There were three panelists- Christina Smolke, a bioengineering professor; Steve Jurvetson, a partner-level venture capitalist and Astro Teller, the head of Google X. I suspect Mr. Teller was the reason for the huge turnout but who knows. The panel looked backwards and forwards along the timeline of tech development and was fairly interesting. I wasn't the biggest fan of the moderator. She was a little too in love with her own cleverness and her questions were convoluted. I think she was trying to channel a NPR Terry Gross-like style and wasn't completely successful.
