Hola from Texas

Don't mess with Texas!At a workshop on "The Ethical Design of Surveillance Technology" in Austin this weekend. Will write more about the event when it's over, but for now I'm enjoying the contradictions of being in Texas' outpost of liberalism, with almost 10% of the city's population students at the University of Texas at Austin. Have seen a few cowboy hats and quite enough evangelical TV channels, but there is a lot of Spanish in evidence and plenty of good food. So it isn't quite the monoglot Dubyaland I expected ;)

Go and check out the pink granite state buildings!

Austin is quite a civilised place all things said and done :-)
