Save the Date for Philosophy, Engineering & Technology: 9-10 May 2010

The 2010 Forum on Philosophy, Engineering, and Technology (FPET-2010) will be held on 9-10 May 2010 (Sunday evening through Monday) at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. The event is an outgrowth of the WPE-2007 and WPE-2008 meetings held in Delft and London.

Philosophical reasoning was important to the writing of The Entrepreneurial Engineer and TEE author David E. Goldberg is one of FPET-2010’s organizers. More information is available at

Tell the hoards at Heathrow

that there is a worldwide financial meltdown, please.  If this is a depression, I'd hate to see a boom.  I'm checked into AA47, LHR to ORD, returning from a talk on genetic algorithms at the Symposium on Search-Based Software Engineering at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, and the number of people in Terminal 3 at Heathrow is astounding.  There are people sipping Starbucks lattes, people buying Yo Sushi, people stuffing their carts in duty-free shops, people sprawled out on chairs and couches, and people milling in the crowded hallways.  

Perhaps they didn't get the memo, or perhaps the "crisis" of the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression are completely, utterly, fantastically, and ridiculously overstated.
