Speaking at the Royal Society of London, 17-18 Mar 2008
I’ve been looking for an excuse to get back to London for quite some time now, and as excuses go it sure doesn’t get any better than this: I’ve been invited to give a paper on the social and ethical implications of ubiquitous computing at a Discussion Meeting of the Royal Society next March.
It’s an honor. It’s a privilege. Even as one of many participants in a Discussion Meeting, let me assure you, the pleasure is all mine. I think I danced Nurri around the house a few times. It’s better than sitting down to a fresh pot of Kona and an uncracked Ellroy, better’n the growl of a Desmodue in the next block, better still than the smell of frangipani after the monsoon rains. (My more worldly friends, y’all go ‘head and crack a smile, it’s all good.)
So you’ll come, right? I mean, I don’t know how admission works at these things, but we’ve got plenty of time to figure it out. But for all too many hours betwixt Heathrow’s Terminals 3 and 4, I haven’t set foot in the UK since the summer of ’98. It’s about time.
