From Computerworld: ”Whew! There sure is a lot to digest with Google’s new Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, officially unveiled in Hong Kong this week. The software, also known as Android 4.0, introduces the biggest changes we’ve seen to Android since the 2.0 releasethat launched with the original Motorola Droid.

Packing for conferences is all about wise shoe choices, so I’m including a triptych of the four to five pairs that I’ll be bringing to New Orleans. Flips and boots are the other likely suspects.
To each its own function: topsiders for whatever, oxfords for presenting, disgusting Toms for running/spelunking.
To see the oxfords in action, you can catch me Friday the 24th at 9:30 keynoting the RUSA Preconference Strange Bedfellows: IT and Reference Collaborations to Enhance User Experiences, Sunday the 26th at 4 at the EQUACC Progress Panel, and hopefully (if I can swing it), at The Right to Read: Increasing Information Access for People with Print Disabilities Panel on Sunday the 26th from 1:30-3:30.
Happy conferencing, and don’t be afraid of heat/humidity: it’s a beautiful combination.
