Perhaps you noticed the home page promotion last week encouraging you to become a Facebook fan of the Computer Society. We offered a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card, which was awarded to Nathan Ensmenger (congrats, Nathan!). Since its launch earlier this month, the CS page has attracted 1,175 fans. Become a fan today!
Facebook is just one place we are picking up our activity.
You can also find us at Twitter. Follow us @ComputerSociety, @ComputingNow, and @SecurityPrivacy.
Linked In has an active IEEE Computer Society Members group administered by, well, members! Join in the discussions there by simply searching for the IEEE Computer Society group.
We also have a channel at You Tube to feature multimedia content. Look for that channel to grow as we devote more resources to developing video content.
Our own site also includes several long-running podcasts. Gary McGraw’s Silver Bullet Security Podcast has 47 interviews with leaders in the security and privacy fields. Grady Booch’s software architecture series now has 22 installments. Computer sponsors a delightful series, In Our Time, which deals with some of the most important recent moments in computer history. And there are more – please have a listen.
Finally, the IEEE island in Second Life is the site of our Artificial Intelligence Learning Center (AILC). AILC aims to take the mystery out of AI and to shape its future uses.
