The other month for the first time in ages I went to a tech event in San Francisco. Personal Cloud folks met. Loved it.
There was one person in the tweet stream that cracked me up continuously and once all presentations were done, I really wanted to find him and asked around, but no one knew him.
Later that evening I forgot all about my original quest and was deep into conversations with a couple of folks about the layers of the internet and what nature has figured out years and years ago and what is missing in our current architecture.
Loved that, wanted to hear more about it, but Mickey McManus needed a ride back to the hotel to get ready for the keynote he was giving at an event in San Francisco.
It was on the way, so I drove him, also to hear more about his research and book: Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology
In exchange for bringing him back to the hotel, he promised to do a Future Salon.
Yes, not at SAP this time, as there is Virtualization Week and all rooms are booked. It has been ages that we have been in San Francisco and I can't wait!
6pm networking reception. By then I hope to have some food and drink sponsorship organized, let me know if you have a lead or want to chip in. Thanks!
7-9pm Interactive Presentation Future Salon style. I am sure folks can get a little tour of the TechShop too if you ask nicely.
And yes, only later that night I realized that the funny #pcloud tweets were from Mickey, like the one above. Can't wait to find out more about his research. Please join us and RSVP http://goo.gl/fFIJt.
P.S. East Bay friends of the Future Salon. Now is your chance to BART it to a Future Salon.
