Digital Earth

This summer, there will be a conference on the Digital Earth in Australia. I am uncertain how to raise the funds to go, but the concept is very nicely put.

Last year, it was held in San Fransisco, CA. My friend attended, and told me that it was one of the most innovative and invigorating experience of his life.

When I speak of ubiquitous technology and light modernity, I mean that technology will become smaller, lighter, and more transparent. When this happens, technology and reality will meld into one. The picture below shows an application of RFID/GPS to blend together real locations with digital ones.
