Our ideas for our conference project have not yet fully developed. As Erika says, it will slowly "organically" grow - this is what we're waiting for.
We've come up with the possibility of presenting around one of the major themes: science or religion. With these themes we should be able to develop a detailed presentation. We are also unsure about how we're going to present. We talked today about using prezi.com to organize our thoughts, but we haven't yet decided. 

Edit: We've started discussing the idea of developing our conference project around the God's Gardeners as our focus. We feel this will allow us to explore all of the major themes, delving into religion, science, and the interaction of humans with the environment.

At first, two iron wires connected each pair of telephones. Then switchboards brought phone wires into one location. Other inventions - the vacuum tube to amplify sound, and coaxial cables to link long distances on land and under the seas -- greatly expanded phone service. Transistors replaced the old vacuum tubes, and by the 1960s communications satellites eliminated the necessity of landlines. Today, bundles of glass fibers carry calls on laser beams of light.
