Back from OOPSLA

Just arrived back home. I will write about the demo that we did for Alan's Turing Award Lecture tomorrow. Alan received a standing ovation for his talk, and I must say it was the best one I have seen him give. It was concise and quite powerful. The demos he did at the end were a strong demonstration of the truth of his words. I was inspired. Time to take back the night...

Actually, I was a bit disappointed in Kay's Turing talk. I thought the talk he gave at the Educators symposium the day before was the better talk of the two.

There was a lot more emphasis on the demos in the educators talk. Alan also had a lot more time. Perhaps the reason I liked the Turing talk so much was that it was a lot more focused on some very interesting and important issues. The demos sometimes seem like a distraction to me.
