Back to Boskone
Boston in February. Yet I keep coming back...
Once again I'll be attending Boskone, which in 2017 is happening from February 17 to the 19th. I'll be around from Friday to Sunday, but my main programming is concentrated on the last two days.
The following schedule is subject to change, but it should give you an idea of where I'll be and when:
Saturday 13:00 - 14:00, Marina 3 (Westin)
The first computers took up rooms and had languages invented so we could “talk” to them. We now can control mobile phones through hand gestures. Will the next phase be a direct human-computer connection? Will virtual or augmented reality become common in our daily lives? Might we lose ourselves within our technology?
Great Cities of SF/F/H
Saturday 15:00 - 16:00, Marina 3 (Westin)
On Mercury, Kim Stanley Robinson’s Terminator moves on giant tracks to stay ahead of dawn. Fran Wilde’s unnamed urb spears its towers of living bone far above the clouds. China Mieville’s Armada is basically a big bunch of pirate houseboats. What’s your favorite skiffy metropolis? By 2045, 6 billion people may live in cities here on Earth. What will that be like?
