Tonight I went to my first Lambda Lounge meeting in St. Louis. The Lambda Lounge is a club organized to promote language topics as well as other computer science interests.
Tonight's topic was a non-technical one, Humanity 2.0: How you are enabling the redefinition of "life as you know it". While the discussion of scale in terms of both size (size of the earth vs. the sun and the galaxy) and time (first tools to the Large Hadron Collider), I wish more time had been spent on the potential implications of nanotechnology and robots. These topics were mentioned but not expanded on. All in all though the talk was excellent and the conversation that followed was intriguing.
Definitely looking forward to my next Lambda Lounge meeting.
