If my view from the podium is like the last picture ... I will give my presentation in mime :-) ## Looking forward to dispatches from Norway. I will take pictures and videos and post blogs ... the problem will be to get me to stop :-)

Ah Ha! But the excitement of hearing what I have to say will make them so warm and tingly that they will have to strip down to shorts and T-Shirts... Seriously, I have no idea what to expect weather-wise -- I know Feb is the coldest month over there but I don't know how cold it gets -- I'm going to have to look into this and get some appropriate clothes...

If you're view from the podium is like that last picture you might want to change your talk topic to "New Usages of FPGA's in Invisibility Cloaks!" I remember my sister reading Kon-Tiki, and while I have not read it yet, I did read Tim Severin's The Brendan Voyage, a very enjoyable read of a similar nature. Looking forward to dispatches from Norway.

You are not likely to have a packed house like the picture in your article. If you do, it will be because your plane was about 5 months overdue! I would expect the people to be wrapped like eskimos in February! Have a good time in Oslo!

## ...but Cooley didn't put it all together... That's why I'm here :-) Actually this is an area I don't know too much about -- do you know who is working on this?

Since you're reading a book on the (human) brain, you could summarize the research being done on using FPGAs to simulate neural nets, and the autonomous re-wiring of same when parts of the brain get damaged. John Cooley had a thread like that many years ago on ESNUG/DeepChip .... but Cooley didn't put it all together into a powerpint pitch!
