Security for virtualized datacentres

Captain Cyborg aka Kevin Warwick, the media-hungry professor of cybernetics at Reading University, is to pay The Reg a visit. Not that he knows it yet.

We have been following Kev and his various pronouncements for well over a year now. We were there when he claimed he had become a cyborg by putting a reed switch under several millimetres of skin and we have followed him through his sudden expertise in hard disks and the effect TV has on people. We have also delved into his past to reveal a catalogue of failed experiments and furious academics.

But until now, he has always steered clear of a face-to-face meeting.

That's why we were intrigued when a reader told us he was planning to visit the Big Smoke and lead an informal discussion regarding his chip-based fantasies about robots ruling the world.

Not only is he coming to London but we were hugely entertained to hear that he will hold this discussion in the Maddox Wine Bar - which is approximately 20 feet from our offices. Doubtless to say, the chance to talk to the great man gets no better than this. We look forward to raising a few points on 17 May. ®
