To Google's SciFoo Camp!

I'm awfully lucky to have been invited to Google's annual SciFoo camp at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA this summer!

Dr. Cameron Smith, Anthropology adjunct faculty, has been invited to the Google SciFoo event this summer. Each year, 250 thought leaders from the sciences and arts are invited to the free-form, three-day event at the Google campus in Mountain View, Calif. Smith was invited for his work in the reinvention of certain space exploration technologies and writings on human space settlement, featuring an anthropological and adaptive approach.

You can find some of my writings on the topic at my PSU Selected Works page.

You can hear about the reinvention of some space exploration technologies in my 2015 TEDx Portland talk.
