One of the highlights of atteding SXSW last year was meeting Dean Kamen and Bob Metcalf at events organized by IEEE. In this picture I am with Bob Metcalf who I first met in Camden, Maine at Poptech. This year I am excited by the tech brainpower IEEE is bringing to SXSW.
Here are some that definitely caught my eye and I have added them to my schedule
- Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web is talking about the : "Open Web Platform: Hopes and Fears"
- Digital Telepathy: When Every Thing Connects will be talking about Convergence and interconnection of devices
- Heather Knight "Charismatic Machines & Robot Comedy"
Many of these events are sold out but the organizers say that if you arrive early you still have a chance of getting in First Come First Served.
Check out all the events from IEEE at SXSW here. Must do for all geeks and other citizens of the world.
