Day 1 reflection by Jonan Ling

Plenary sessions:
1: Water problems 'knock off' 2B+ people on the planet, simply due to water related problems or lack of access to water.
2: Microelectronics is set to permeate our daily lives and the objects we interact with.
3: Nano-tech has many applications in real life, like killing bacteria and cleaning water.
4: Animations are moving stories, and 3D computer animation is much cheaper and less labour intensive than traditional 2D hand-drawn animation.
5: Sea-levels near melting glaciers will actually fall when the glaciers melt, instead of rising.

The plenary session that leaves the deepest impression on me is Plenary session 5.
What I find important about it is that unlike all the other plenary sessions, the topic discussed within will affect us within the short term, unlike all the other discussed topics.
