I thought so. I remember chatting with you in kind of a mall or something like that in St.Louis. As I get older, the mind is the first thing to go. We only go a brief chance to chat in Tucson so glad to hear you are going to DC. We have another great conference planned. I look forward to catching up with you.

Hey Shannon,
How are you doing? Nice to see you on FOHBOH. Hope all is well with you and I look forward to chatting more in the future. What was your first CHART conference? I want to say Nashville but I am thinking it may have been earlier.

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
