So here I am in fabulous, cosmopolitan Hong Kong getting ready to speak at the 2010 Knowledge Management Conference: Making KM Productive. And I’ll be tweeting using #HKKMS10 on March 30 and bringing you tidbits from the sessions of Max Boisot, Dave Snowden and other KM luminaries. If you are looking for me on Twitter, I’m @kimmar (but you can also watch the ThinkingShift tweets being updated on the right hand side panel of this blog).
But I have a day or so to roam Hong Kong and take photos. I’ve brought my Nikon D40, Smena 8M, Diana F+ and Superheadz Pink Dress cameras with me – is this overkill? I’ll be uploading photos to my photoblog, ChinchillaBluePhotography, when I get back.
Meanwhile, today’s post is very Minority Report. Laptops, cell phones, PCs will be so very passé in the not too distant future because all you’ll need to do is roll up your sleeve and tap the flesh on your forearm. Up will pop a touch screen, you tap out a few strokes and, voilà, your computer unlocks, your front door opens, you answer your cell phone. The technology is still pretty clunky. It’s called Skinput and here’s a photo:
Mmmmm….look closely at the photo. Doesn’t it remind you of the identification numbers the Nazis tattooed onto the left forearm of Jewish people (and others) stuffed into the concentration camps during WWII?
