Vernor Vinge, the Singularity and Free Software

Posted 9 Nov 2008 at 21:19 UTC by steve Share This

If you're in San Diego, California, we heard about a really interesting event you'll want to attend. Two topics that are always of interest to robot builders are the Singularity and Free Software. The Free Software Foundation is holding a pizza party and Vernor Vinge, the originator of the modern version of the Technological Singularity idea, will be there. The event will be from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, on Tuesday, November 11 at the Best Western, 411 Hotel Circle S, San Diego. And since this is California, they'll even have vegan Pizza available. This event is for FSF members but you're already a member right? If not, it's easy to join the FSF and your money will go to support the development of great software like gcc that you probably use everday. So go if you can, have some fun, and throw in a good word about robots.net.


General Public is welcome, posted 10 Nov 2008 at 16:08 UTC by steve » (Master)

I got an update from Deborah at the FSF. She says,

The general public is welcome, as long as they are prepared for an event that is about free software, rather than a book signing or reading. My hope is that this event will help us identify more people like Mr. Vinge who are interested in free software and sci-fi.
