Small world ... big co-incidences!
Today I had the pleasure to be the keynote speaker to 150 people gathered for an event in Suffolk, England. I mentioned during my presentation my recent trip to the MIT media lab in the USA. Then at the end, one of the audience came to say hello and asked if I knew one of the professors there called Tod Machover. Tod does some really excellent projects in the area of music and is currently working on a fantastically innovative opera. It was co-incidental that a member of my audience today also called Jonathan also knows Tod so well! Similarly it is co-incidental that one of my similar presentations of future technologies last year was also given at the Sage, Gateshead - the venue for the premiere of Tod's opera! It's a small world!
