So, basically, we're fucked no matter what.

Enjoy the ride, while it lasts.

 

Convergence Conference 2016: November 13, 14, and 15 at the BMO Centre Calgary, Alberta http://convergenceconference.ca

It's listed as something that includes post-sec, but we'd never heard of it. Maybe next year.

 

Listening to Audrey and Kin, on their Tech Gypsies podcast. So good.

eCampusAlberta shutting down. Interesting.

 

I'm seriously thinking of cancelling travel plans to Texas in February. It suddenly doesn't feel like a place I want to be.

 

Microsoft Research Fusion4D - using multiple Kinect sensors and realtime processing to capture 3D models of live performance.

Van Helsing. Best Frankenstein's monster I've seen - very close to Shelley's original. Vampires? Werewolves? Meh. The crazy 3D animation with no awareness of the laws of physics? Totally ruined it.

 

I'm letting my twitter and Facebook accounts expire after the 30-day cooling off period ends next week. May try resurrecting this site to document stream-of-conscious stuff that doesn't warrant blog posts…

 

Thinking about publishing models, and how Known relates to WordPress. Actually, more like procrastinating some final edits of a portfolio to submit soon…

 

Checking out the latest version of Known. So shiny. Also, wondering why on earth we don't have web hosting as great @reclaimhosting at @ucalgary. It'd have taken a week of back-and-forth and remedy tickets and escalations to update a site on a campus server. Updated it myself in under a minute.
