Fun at EGL- IUG
Michele McNeal and I just got done presenting our bots at EGL - IUG in Akron. They gave us the auditorium, which was a real kick. Nothing like standing at a podium with Emma's face projected onto a HUGE screen behind you. Very "Citizen Kane." (Is this why people get that funny look when I insist that robots aren't going to take over the world?) Michele took some photos which I'll post later along with the slides of our presentation. We got a decent audience, but it was a little hard to gauge their reaction. The public loves her, librarians are...afraid?
