Hm. If I were ever allowed (I'm not), I would host my own information technology roundtable. Fame would not be a requirement, just a demonstrated engagement in new learning technologies. It would be genuinely international and it would include as many women as men. It's not hard to get such a group together, you just have to want to do it, and be blind to a certain demographic's persistent self-promotion. Oh, and I'd invite Terry Anderson, because he is certainly astute enough. Anyhow, it's nice to see the (demographically challenged) current group of "intellegensia" finally discovering 'pull'. Nice of them to join the party.
