I am excited to have recently become part of the inaugural class of the ACM's Future of Computing Academy. I will be working with other computing professionals to push forward new initiatives to shape the ACM and computing in society. Per the FCA site:
The ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA) is a new initiative created by ACM to support and foster the next generation of computing professionals. The Academy is a platform that enables the next generation of researchers, practitioners, educators and entrepreneurs to develop a coherent and influential voice that addresses challenging issues facing the field and society in general. The ACM-FCA will seek to harness collective action to define and launch new ACM initiatives that will carry us into the future.
I'm excited to be attending the Turing Awards in June, when we will kick things off with an initial meeting of the entire class.
