Well I guess it pays to have academics around. Via [PurseLipSquareJaw] I learn of UbiComp 2003 the Fifth (no less) Annual Conference on Ubiquitous Computing. The conference is right here in Seattle and only costs the equivalent of one day's heli-skiing.
"Ubiquitous Computing" means "computing technology that migrates beyond our desktops onto our hands, heads and clothing, and becomes increasingly embedded in a wide variety of other objects, such as walls, cars and appliances."
Very interesting. White Rose should monitor this one as of course the implications for privacy are staggering.
