• What we'll do
PWL mini:
Max Payton will be presenting "Reflections on Trusting Trust"
"To what extent should one trust a statement that a program is free of Trojan horses? Perhaps it is more important to trust the people who wrote the software."

Main Event:
Scott Francis will be presenting "The Ultimate Display" (1965)
"A display connected to a digital computer gives us a chance to gain familiarity with concepts not realizable in the physical world. It is a looking glass into a mathematical wonderland." Scott will also be talking about how the prediction in this paper turned out.

• Important to know
We have a new location this month! Check the map, we'll be meeting at Lyft Seattle. PLEASE try to come early if you can. We graciously will have someone helping sign people in, but she will not be there all night.

Big ups to Lyft for hosting this month
