I met Marvin Minsky at Idea City in 2003, where he gave a talk. We did not talk about artificial intelligence. We talked about the glass and light sculptures that were on display at one of the parties. It was one of the few times at the conference where he was on his own, without his assistant and without a crowd of people, and was able to explore. That was our one and only meeting.
