Next month I'll be in California to do further research on my book and give two talks. The first, on 'Nature and Cyberspace', is at the Technology, Knowledge and Society Conference at UCLA 16-18th January. The second is on 'Amplification and Biophilia in a Networked World' at the Institute for the Future, Palo Alto, on 24th January. It will be a special pleasure to go back to IFTF, where I gave a talk a few years ago. I'll also be doing some research during the trip, and very much hope to visit the new Kleinrock Internet History Center at UCLA, located in the room which hosted the very first ARPANET node.
