This weekend I have the opportunity to go to "Science Foo Camp," an informal meeting organized by O'Reilly, Nature, and Google situated at the Google campus. Colleagues describe it as an un-conference in which participants with widely varying backgrounds spontaneously sign up to give (60-minute?) and hopefully back-and-forth discussions about topics such as: my time in space(!), extending the human lifespan, biological engineering, etc.
Am thinking I'll give a survey about hologram-like display technologies, and the underlying components which enable them. Looking at this year's attendee list, I have to admit it's a little daunting. But that's the plan.
