Our March NYC IxDA is this Thursday evening. We still have a few
spots available, so RSVP to nyc at ixda.org if you'd like to join us.
We'll have some snacks and schmoozing before and (briefly) after the
event. All the event details are below.
Adam Greenfield Discusses Ubiquitous Computing
From smart buildings that subtly adapt to the changing flow of
visitors, to gesture-based interfaces like the ones seen in Minority
Report, computing no longer looks much like it used to. Increasingly
invisible but present everywhere in our lives, computing has moved
off the desktop and out into everyday life–affecting almost every one
of us. In this talk, Greenfield will explain how such "information
processing dissolving in behavior" is reshaping our lives.
