ACM Turing Lecture

Posted by rom on August 23, 2005

I normally wake up at 4/430 in the morning to do my usual online rounds. I have been doing this ever since I was a secondary school student. I guess my body clock got programmed and I find it quite difficult to re-program it. Even when I was overseas, where traffic is not at all that bad so there is no need to wake up early, my body clock alarms at 430 or 5AM at the latest.

Anyway, today is a special day for geeks like me. The Association for Computing Machinery is webcasting, for the very first time, the ACM Turing Lecture from University of Pennsylvania. Today’s lecture is given by Vinton G. Cerf and Robert E. Kahn, Recipients of the ACM 2004 Turing Award.

Although it is unfortunate that UPenn is using RealMedia to stream it, at least it is not Microsoft media! 🙂 I wish that it were done using QuickTime.
