Bruce Sterling at Ubicomp
It seems that Bruce Sterling will give the keynote presentation at Ubicomp 2006. It's always good to have a science-fiction writer giving some fresh air in a scientific conference.
Ubicomp: Reifying the Fantastic: Suppose a world really occurs where ubiquitous computing is as common as electricity and radio are today. What would that look and feel like and how would we describe it? Bruce Sterling has been working on a science fiction novel with exactly this topic, and has some thoughts to share on all things physical, fabbable, ambient, findable, and pervasive.
This is somehow what Sterling said he was working on when he gave his talk at LIFT06: how would it be like when everyware will be everywhere. We'll see what he will say about it.
