Christmas Lectures

I have to admit I have enjoyed watching the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures this year. Although the lectures are aimed at a young audience, I did admire the way Christopher Bishop explained things. This may be because the lectures were about computing of course. What amazes me the most was how enthusiastic the audience were to be involved. This may be because if they got to go to the front, they would be seen on TV. They even had Bill gates come in via a video link to answer questions. Bill gave the children some ideas of how the future of computing will develop, so they will know what will not happen.
