I can't wait to see Kinect in action; an Xbox + Kinect is on my Christmas wish list. And, for some reason, my wife is super excited about the robotic balls...hmmmm.
Congrats! That's a funny (and scary) picture on your home page.
Cool! I can't wait to read the book!
Speaking of Defrag, I just read an Eric Schmidt quote on GigaOm that created pee-in-my-pants excitement (for me anyway) and seems to support the theme of Defrag...
"There was 5 exabytes of information created between the dawn of civilization through 2003," Schmidt said, "but that much information is now created every 2 days, and the pace is increasing...People aren't ready for the technology revolution that's going to happen to them."
That sounds like an amazing and fun opportunity! I can't wait to hear the details.
I'm a little late to the party; I didn't read this post until Monday morning. It's an intriguing and thought provoking post! Maybe it's a good theme for the next Defrag conference. I'd love a couple of days of deep thought and immersion along the lines of "are we working for the computer?" (All things Suarez, Sobol and Feld.)
This is getting really wierd. :-)
I'm fine with it as long as I'm behind you. :-)
That's some cool stuff to think about and consider. It looks like the internet version of the mailbox flag can add a lot of lubricant (in the form of reduced pinging) to the internet.
Chauncey - You really need to get your ass up to Boulder. Just do it! Heather and I will even pick you up at the airport if you'd like.
