I just returned from two days in San Francisco, where I attended the ACM Turing Centenary Celebration . It was a truly geeky birthday for a dead guy: 32 Turing Award laureates attended and participated in panels and talks. I ran into a few people who I knew (and who knew me), and a whole bunch of people who I also knew (but who didn’t know me).
A few talks I had already heard at other conferences, but many raised interesting points. I’ll have to get back to that later. Thanks, ACM, for organizing this and inviting me to attend.
