Ricardo and all, greetings from Shannon Clark's apartment in San
Francisco. I will be in the Bay Area for a few weeks making contacts and
looking for clients. I will try to catch up with strategic work. My
priority is to focus our resources on our laboratory's culture of
investigation. I want to acknowledge our participants who are "thinking
out loud" and investigating the questions they don't know the answers to,
but wish to answer. I want to focus my support to help them and also look
to them for leadership.
Ricardo, when might we talk? I will be writing proposals to companies
such as Yahoo and Google which I hope to visit. Barry Dobyns gave me a
great idea which is to focus on thinking through the interface for our
Includer which we might first apply with offline used computers and then
approach such companies so that they fund us to work so that their APIs
can be called by these offline interfaces. It would be great to talk
about that and also overview all the many things you have achieved and
your vision as we move ahead.
Janet, I will be attending Stephen Wolfram's summer school for "A New Kind
Of Science" and they are granting me a scholarship for room and board.
This will be at the
University of Vermont on June 23 - July 11 in Burlington, Vermont. Then I
will travel to Chicago and stay there for a while and attend the July 22
meeting of the Knight Foundation grantees and also the UNITY conference
Janet I will travel to Vermont by way of
Boston. Should I try to visit you? And also are there good times soon
when I might call you to talk?
Benoit, Thank you for your phone number and I look forward to talking soon.
Anybody else would like to talk by phone?
Also, would anybody like to meet in the Bay Area these coming days?
