My husband MG Michael met Monique Morrow (CISCO Distinguished Consulting Engineer and ISTAS13 plenary speaker) http://newsroom.cisco.com/video-content?type=webcontent&articleId=1123490 and Ken Wood (Microsoft Research Labs Cambridge), one of the authors of this paper http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=64287 back in 2006 at the International Conference on Mobile Computing and Ubiquitous Networking that was held at the British Computer Society http://www.icmu.org/icmu2006/. MG presented our paper http://works.bepress.com/kmichael/15/ on behalf of the UOW team with the title: Location-based Services and the Privacy-Security Dichotomy. This was to be a first in a series of international talks MG would deliver on location-based services and the social implications of people becoming 'nodes' in the Internet of Things paradigm, and ultimately his uberveillance concept of people embedded with surveillance technology willingly for medical and non-medical applications.

I thought I would spend a couple of minutes to research more on both Monique (whom we corresponded with occasionally over the years) and Ken (who mentioned MG in his keynote address) and I traced back to this important meeting http://www.icmu.org/icmu2006/keynotes.html.

This long journey has taken us half way around the world, and back to the third author of the Ken Wood paper titled: "Save Everything: Supporting Human Memory with a Personal Digital Lifetime Store" who just happens to be Gordon Bell (Microsoft) who too will be speaking at ISTAS13.

This "innovators" space may be crowded with new players who are selling "visionary brochureware" but in fact, the guys who matter have been engaged in this discussion for several decades and have seen the natural trajectory of technology from the outset.

Hey Kevin- sorry you cannot make it to ISTAS13. You were the first person I thought of when planning for keynotes after Marvin Minsky- you really were instrumental in pushing veillance as a domain, as soon as you embraced uberveillance...  http://www.kevinwarwick.com/   http://www.kevinwarwick.com/
