After touching base here at Oxford, I’m off to give a Linus Pauling Memorial Lecture in Portland Oregon (7pm Wednesday, November 20th).
Linus Pauling helped to found the fields of quantum chemistry and molecular biology, and he received the 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his fundamental work on the nature of the chemical bond.
After I published the PNAS paper in which I laid out the principles of atomically precise manufacturing, Pauling called me to complain that I hadn’t cited him. But then, I hadn’t cited Newton, either.
I’ll giving the keynote talk at this year’s Tech Plus Forum in Seoul on Thursday morning, following the opening remarks by the Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy. The Tech Plus Forum has previously drawn up to 8000 participants and is organized by the Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology, cosponsored by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy.
The theme of this year’s forum: Creativity.
Some arrangements are a bit surprising: not just the usual travel, hotel, meals, lecture fee, and all that — but also a tailored suit. I’ll be testing the fit when I arrive.
Off to Heathrow…
Update from Seoul, 13 November, just to blog from a car with wifi.
