Thursday happenings @ Etech

posted by Jason Kottke Apr 24, 2003

Looking ahead to what's on tap for today at Etech, there's Alan Kay — inventor of the Smalltalk programming language — talking about why the computer revolution hasn't happened yet, Macromedia's Kevin Lynch on personal interfaces, the all-powerful Clay Shirky (all hail Clay, for he is our God!) talks about the group getting in its own way in social software, Coates on UpMyStreet, Gillmor on Journalism 3.0, warblogging, Meg on weblogs and a little RSS controversy, Kapor on Chandler, Data Mining Social Cyberspaces, Mr. Stewart Butterfield on how games and social software are the same ass thing (well, maybe not exactly), nanotech, and social software in school reform. Whew!

Not to mention the BOFs: user experience and etech, a LazyWeb free-for-all, and web geoblogging. If your brain is not full by the end of the day, you're not trying hard enough.

Anil said it right yesterday: Kottke owns etech coverage. ;)

Oh, one more thing. In your post last week you said you'd be taking digital photos. Where are those, oh king of all blogs?

These bookmobile photos not enough for you, Michael? Poor Jason's going to blog himself to death here and you're just egging him on!

Photos are for posting when you're back at home. ;)

The bookmobile photos are definitely good -- I just want more more more! I want to see snapshots of hundreds of people in jeans with iBooks and digital cameras posting to their weblogs... Or a group shot of Cory and Clay and the Brits -- oh my!
