Surf’s Up

IMG_0018The Chateau Laurier is an icon of Ottawa: it reminds me of a dreamier vision of Canada, romantic, heroic, and yet knowingly aware of the time. This photo, on display in the Chateau, spoke volumes to me: John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Pierre Trudeau, all at the Chateau. It was 1969, and I was 16 and at school only a few kilometers away. Anyway, my visit to the Chateau today, all of 10 minutes drive from our lab, was for the official announcement of SurfNet, the Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council’s Strategic Network on Surface Computing. Let’s think of the future.  Robert Biddle
