The diverse crowd included everyone from nonprofit TreePeople to TV show Alter Eco to green business Brand Neutral to eco-sites like Your Daily Thread and of course, MNN. Below: Me and Karl Burkart, MNN’s tech blogger.

The actual Opportunity Green conference will happen Nov. 7-8, 2009 at UCLA. Already, an impressive roster of speakers — including Annie Leonard from The Story of Stuff to Peter Diamandis, founder of the X Prize Foundation — have signed on.
