Eustace Tilly might as well be getting LASIK. With a lineup that’s plucked from the design and technology conferences of the past year, the New Yorker Conference/2012: stories from the near future is rallying to be a heavyweight for those of the innovation persuasion:

“It’s the ultimate insider’s look at the works in progress that will shape our world, from boardrooms to courtrooms, from biology labs to design studios.”

Design studios indeed: Yves & Curls will be in attendance, as will be Miss Zaha, plus our interactive angels Will Wright and Craig Newmark. You even get to hang out at the IAC/InterActiveCorp building “designed by Frank Gehry.

And all this can be yours for the low price of $1200, but think about it this way: That’s $600 to hang out with David Remnick and $600 for Malcolm Gladwell. Not sold? Watch the video. They talk about Google!
