Today, as many of you will know, is Ada Lovelace Day: the day on which we are all encouraged to write about women working in science and technology. I have been rather busy of late, and haven’t managed to compose anything lengthy, so I’m going to be lazy. Here is Rachel Armstrong doing what she does best — talking about living architecture.
That was recorded in 2009. I first met Rachel when she talked about the Venice project at the Architectural Association last year. When I met her at the British Library last month she told me that the project is currently mired in Italian politics. Given the popular suspicion of “gray goo”, this is hardly surprising, but it is still a very cool SFnal idea.
