At Push, the first talk was on Space, lots of pretty pictures, but I guess that I am ambivalent about space, having watched us pump staggering amounts of money into the effort, while at the same time ignoring all kinds of other problems.

My friend Ethan Zuckerman is doing a great job of blogging the event!
