Oh, man! I have roots in geographical information systems from my work in the oil patch in Texas. I was a cartographer with Shell! And, I have a Palm GPS attachment. I loved the software that was developed for the Palm. I can't wait to get a iPhone with real GPS. And, I am working with sensors, planning to integrate GPS - I may make a anti-theft device for bikes. We'll have a lot to talk about here. I hope you join the iPhone dev group and the sensor group. Maybe you will be interested in starting your own group about GPS and mapping. Mashups, Google Maps, Google Earth, ... be still my heart! I am such a geek - these are my favorite things. Geo caching, ... my first gig as a freelancer was with a startup in Texas that sold a onboard, realtime navigation processing workstation for offshore seismic acquisition. How about that?
Hi Matt and welcome to Codetown. Neural nets - I have looked into rules engines quite a bit - and did a Swampcast with the Pandora guys. Tell us about your neural net experience if you get the chance. Maybe we need a neural Net group? Glad to have you here. I was in Sandusky for Codemash and plan to visit my mom's alma mater, UM someday. Cheers, Mike Levin

Bryan Cantrill talks about Moore's Law which, after years of defying predictions of its demise, it is now indisputably dying. But what does the end of Moore's Law mean for practitioners of enterprise computing? He explores potential ramifications, including not only the exotic world of emerging substrates, but much more mundane notions of scale, durability, economics and (yes!) accounting.
