I’ll be taking a break from hacking (and household chores) this weekend to attend the Singularity Summit in San Francisco. My new friend Steve Omohundro will be among the many acclaimed and interesting speakers. The subject is “the Singularity”, the point in time at which our machines and inventions become smarter than us.

I’ll be giving a presentation on RubyObjC at Jonathan Rentzsch’s C4  conference. The conference is a weekend workshop in Chicago on August 10-12.
The idea behind my invitation was to get a behind the scenes look at what it takes to bridge a scripting language to Objective-C. If you’re there, I’ll give you that in painful detail (ok, I’ll try not to make it too painful) and then I’ll spice up the story with a surprise conclusion.
I’m back home after spending yesterday with my family on the Santa Cruz boardwalk. While we were getting tossed around on the rides, someone found a URL that crashed NuBlog (such a dumb name—someone please suggest a replacement), and that had my blog down for the afternoon.
Many thanks to Wolf Rentzsch for giving me the chance to speak at C4 , and to everyone for all the kind words, backchannel chatter, and blog coverage.
