Alan Kay Organick Lectures


Alan Kay will give this year's Organick Lectures at the University of Utah on Feb 23rd. He will speak in the afternoon (@3:40pm) on "Are 'Computer Science' and 'Software Engineering' Oxymorons?" and in the evening (@7:30pm) on "Children, Powerful Ideas, and the $100 Laptop." Both lectures will be at the 202 Skaggs Biology Research Building.

If you're in the area, you ought to go. Alan Kay has wonderful and inspiring to listen to whenever I've heard him. What's more, the setting is usually fairly small. Last year, when I heard Vint Cerf speak, there were probably less that 100 people there.
