Trillions of Sensors

The blurb for Extropia’s “Thinker’s Discussion” today contains these rather startling sentences: “In the future, the internet will be comprised of trillions of sensors. There might be AI that can see, hear, recognise emotion and even read minds.” I wonder on what Extropia basis this assertion, don’t you? Well, get over to Support For Healing a 3:30pm slt. You better go. The sensors will tell me if you don’t. [insert mad scientist laughter here]

Ruby, Obama, and Wednesday Night Chat

It’s Wednesday night, and that means it’s time for wednesday night chat at the Benicia Hill Community Center at 8pm slt. Tonight is “open topic” so brings ideas for stuff to discuss. Serious. Silly. Whatever you like.

Also tonight are two other tempting discussion events:

The Rubyists meeting is “show and tell.” From the description: ” Bring any Ruby or Rails script you’ve developed and would like to discuss & share with the group.” Sounds like good, clean, nerdy fun.

Return of the Rubyists

Hooray. The Rubyists of Second Life are back and having a 2007 kickoff meeting on Wednesday, February 7th at 6:00pm slt. If you’re unfamiliar with Ruby, please read the Wikipedia entry about it. (Hint: It’s a programming language.)
