The Month - October 2011
in San Francisco and then Mountain View.
Then I have the treat of being a keynote speaker at WhereCamp Boston alongside Jeff Warren. It’ll be the first time I talk outside of a narrow, technical topic in quite a while. (my presentations are listed in about) So I’m hoping to have some fun with it - to refine big, the hacky presentation software I wrote for/at my presentation at FOSS4G, and to talk about something a little crazier.
- And, of course, some obscure technology: the world’s best introduction to sed by Peteris Krumins is eye-opening.
- And some obscure math: I had too much fun reading An Adventure in the Nth Dimension, an article about n-dimensional spheres and cubes and their bizarre relationships of volume.
- On Saman’s recommendation, I read Extra Lives on video gaming and also happened to find Destroy all Monsters from Believer magazine. I haven’t played a computer game in years and have never played D&D (despite naming a library after it), but I’m starting to feel like I should: there’s definitely something there.
And, sneaking up on me, November is the month for hometaping 3, so I’m going to be recording an album, start to finish. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it complete - crazy to think that 2010’s album is a year old now - but it’s time!
