Vernor Vinge, the Singularity and Free Software
     


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.
