DNI OSINT Conference 2008
There are a lot of conferences and symposia one can attend on defense, security and intelligence issues, but few are both important and accessible to a wide audience. The DNI OSINT Conference is one of those that fit both categories. While the price is certainly nice, the fact that it pulls back the curtain (to a certain extent) and exposes you to the people and efforts that are trying to get ostensibly the information-centric enterprise more in sync with the information age is pretty neat.
