Back in Chicago
I had a great time in Boston catching up with old friends, but I was a little disappointed with Cyberposium this year. The tech industry is in the middle of tackling some difficult questions, but "what's the next big thing" isn't one of them, and that kind of seemed to be what the conference was angling for. Chicago is putting together a (much smaller) technology conference this coming Friday, and as one of the organizers I tried to focus it around some of the major work the tech industry will embark on over the next 3 years. I hope we'll get some good discussions.
