It’s 10 pm here in EST America, but in Delhi it’s 8:30 am tomorrow. I stayed in the luxurious Taj Mahal Grand Hotel in Delhi this summer whilst there for the “Owning the Future” symposium. And tonight, their today and my tomorrow, I received a very nice email with pictures of roses wishing me happy birthday.

One will be me. I’m not exactly repeating the talk I recently did at Duke; I’m asking folks who come to this upcoming talk to add, subtract, modify the wiki pages of that talk and/or to send me email (jonesATuncDOTedu) and/or post a comment on this blog entry as a way of participating in the talk before it even begins. So have at it! And do come to the talks. All three look good.
Just back from Legopalooza at the Morehead Science Center where Joe Meno of BrickJournal had a simple MindStorms robot running around a table. The robot has a sonar/ultrasound/bat-like radar sensor so that when it encountered an object it would reverse course and then turn in a random direction. The fun for kids of all ages was that we had to be the objects or the robot would run off the table. [It's this one but without the camera part. So the NXT spy rover without the spying part.]
We left and then took the boys to WCOM where they began the Teen Spirit radio show with an in-studio interview with Django Haskins and Josh Starmer of the Old Ceremony. Django sang and played guitar while Josh played cello which led to some interesting sound engineering. The Old Ceremony is off for a couple of gigs opening for the Squirrel Nut Zippers and a trip to NYC.
Talk about different music and different interviews. Both went well and all seemed to have a great time. No known robots took part in the interviews.
