Going through old unpublished blog posts and found this story from a year and a half ago:
Just before I left Pittsburgh for the summer, a co-worker friend came over to my house to record some voice-overs (my place was the unofficial recording studio for the Design department).
While I was getting set up, she checked out the books on my bookshelf. She pointed to one and said, “Oh, I know this guy. We talked about wearable computers when he visited campus a few weeks ago. He was really interested in the work we did together on audio and tactile interfaces last semester”.
The book was Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash.
