August 25, 2011 at 3:10 p.m. (refreshments served prior to the seminar)
FL2 - 1022 (Large Auditorium)
For the past forty years* industry has been moving computer support further away from the end user while simultaneously making computers harder to use, building in obsolescence, wasting electricity, and making computers every more of a black box.
Project Cauã will make computers easier to use, reduce the amount of electricity usage, create gratis wireless bubbles over large urban areas, and allow super-computing grids of low cost, create millions of high-tech new jobs world-wide, all without costing the taxpayer a single penny.**
WorldPeace(TM) is next month's topic.
* Is it my imagination or did the U.S. deficit start at about the same time?
