Connolly at ISWC and related events

16-24 Oct 2003 Sanibel Island, FL

I attended a DAML PI meeting the 2nd International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2003)

riding a bike back from the conference to the Best Western in Fla, I had to completely abandon the idea that you can see the road ahead and just trust that it was there. My eyes went into a different mode; there was no figure-and-ground; only dark, dark grey with the occasional motion-clue. I could see how sailors appreciated starlight/moonlight. Oncoming traffic was nice while it shone light on my path, but then when they went away, I was blind until my eyes reset.
