Great conversation and event with SciFi author Ted Chiang

Sci-Fi author Ted Chiang is visiting Georgia Tech right now, and I got a chance to speak with him about questions of authorship, authority, and the reputation of science fiction in the academy. He also met with several of our classes and then gave a great paper, "Mobile Technologies and New Narratives of the Self," the first act in our School's Distinguished Speaker Series this year. Now I know a lot more about lifelogging. Thanks to colleagues Lisa Yaszek and Nirmal Trivedi for bringing Ted to our campus.
