A couple of things September 13, 2007

Just a couple of things you might like to be made aware of:

  • David Orban, long time ago a colleague of mine and now CEO of a software firm, is attending the Singularity Summit in San Francisco as we speak. He is blogging from the site and I am enjoying his reports a lot – he is concise and straight to the point, something which is totally alien to my own prose. He also posts tons of nice pictures of the main characters and the place. Please read his reports here: Day one (morning), Day one (afternoon), Day two (morning), Day two (afternoon). Of course, more to come.
  • Marni Dee Sheppeard, aka Kea, aka The Arcadian Functor, has now reached the hundredth installment of her serial on M-theory. Congratulations Kea, well done and good luck for the next 100! Her latest effort is bordering philosophical issues.
  • Gerard ‘t Hooft has translated his lecture notes on Lie groups in English. These are excellent study material!  Thanks Peter for pointing to them!

The Singularity Summit is finished (last weekend), but there is a related conference in progress: Center for Responsible Nanotech conference in Tucson, where Michael Anissimov is blogging:

Also Aubrey de Grey’s SENS3 (anti-aging) conference occurred last weekend (Cambridge, UK), as well. I heard that some (all?) of the talks will be placed online. I have not heard yet if anyone blogged it.

Well received, thank you.

Tommaso, the Singularity Summit was a great event, thanks for linking. I would not be surprised if it were called a ‘watershed’ in ten years’ time. There is more to tell, and I will pull together more of my notes, and impressions.

Ok David, please do and I will have a look

Cheers,
T.
