I think that I'm really going to go through with this idea. It's kind of scary. I've never been a journalist or even a rogue journalist. I just think that the topic is important and that it should be discussed. I don't think that the sciences get any sort of press in the area of the world so I'm going to create it.
I know there has to be some sort of tech community around here but there isn't anyone to recognize it. As I was looking around last night I ran across several different organizations, ACM, IEEE, TALUG, there was a meetup with web developers, and more.
I have been exposed to the professional organizations while in college but I had little to no contact with the professional chapters even after I graduated. I also ran across a blog or two, like Keith Instone's. I was in contact with Keith a while back. He was trying to help revive the the local chapter of ACM. Which it looks like they got their paperwork completed.
I think that I'm going to have to pay my dues, finally to ACM.
Looks like I missed a presentation on "Active Learning for Speech Recognition".
I'm going to have to do this. Wish me luck. I just hope that I don't get distracted by something shiny.
