Off-Keynote Speaker

I received an email invitation to an Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose this April.

While that isn't anything interesting in and of itself, I thought it very odd that the keynote speaker that is heavily advertised in the email (register early to get priority seating!) is Al Gore.

Now, this isn't just a conference about general technology, like CES (the Consumer Electronics Show), it's specifically about embedded devices/systems. It would already be a big stretch to associate Al Gore with general technology even, but what the heck does he have to do with embedded devices? My guess is that the event organizer is a liberal global warming fanatic who wet himself at the very notion of getting to meet Mr. Inconvenient Truth himself.

Speaking of Al Gore, I read some interesting articles lately about global warming and will maybe post my thoughts on the topic sometime soon. I'm guessing that subject will generate some interesting comments.

You'll see, and you may be surprised.

It probably won't be the next post, but soon.
