Off to San Diego for ETech

Up bright and early tom’w to jetBlue my way to San Diego for O’Reilly’s 2007 Emerging Technology Conference, where I’ll be giving a talk called “Toward a new animism.”

That title should probably be sporting a question mark. This is because, as will swiftly become evident, I actually think animism – or any form of magic – is a really crappy paradigm for human-informatic interaction. You’ll have to tune in on Tuesday to find out why.

Of course, the real reason for going is the usual one: I’m more than usually looking forward to seeing an Alice, an Andrew, a Ben, a danah, a Mike, at least one Tom, and multiple Matts. Catch you other side of the continent.
