It’s taken me most of the day, and the light is already fading, but I finally pushed my contribution to Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A out the door: a little thing I’m calling “Some guidelines for the ethical development of ubiquitous computing.”
I found the effort exhausting, actually – I’m not at all used to writing in an academic voice or format, and, heck, I have no problem confessing that I find the prospect of this particular publication as daunting and humbling as it is inspiring. I guess it’s best to think of it as one less thing I have left hanging over me before Nurri and I get on a plane for London in two weeks to actually go and present the paper. (Y’all Londinium regulars be advised that Mr. Jones is apparently planning some event to mark the occasion.)
In the meantime, those of you in the Washington DC area might want to come see me keynote this week’s Politics Online Conference – it sure looks like Julie’s put together an impressive event, and I’m looking forward to sharing my perspective with a community to which I haven’t historically had that much exposure. And, of course, to seeing the entire DC crew.
Me, I think I’m going to relax now with a large Corsendonk and the week’s Netflix haul. See ya soon.
