Gordon Bell Speaking in Palo Alto

Gordon Bell is going to be speaking in Palo Alto on Feb 19th at 7PM. The topic seems to be a wonderfully geeky melange of old ideas with new implications and forward looking applications. I’m gonna have to watch Lain a few more times before I go to this one. Anything that feels it can invoke the name Vannevar Bush without trying to joke about it is at least worth a look. Plus Gordon Bell is no lightweight either. I would think it would be worthwhile to hear him speak, but that’s what I thought last month about going to see Whitfield Diffie, and I was really wrong about that. So this time I’m not going to make any speculations. I’m going to see the presentation and I hope it’s good. There will definitely be bloggage from me no matter what.
