naturedance: my foot, in my boot, on Mount Rainier (Default)
I’ve finally admitted to myself that I need a single place to archive online all of my conference presentations, workshops, tutorial materials and such.

So I've set up Adele: Rolling in the Geeks at adeleshakal.com.

Just watch this video... the method used to present this information is as refreshing and captivating as the topic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3oIiH7BLmg

Professor Philip Zimbardo conveys how our individual perspectives of time affect our work, health and well-being. Time influences who we are as a person, how we view relationships and how we act in the world.

I've talked about this technology before with various people, but I don't think I've posted the links for safekeeping here...

Johnny Chung Lee has some amazing stuff, including Low-Cost Multi-point Interactive Whiteboards Using the Wiimote. One of my fantastic co-workers (who likes to tinker and build robots in his spare time in addition to being a formidable project manager at work) tried it out according to the instructions provided at the website below, and seeing that little IR pen in action, mere years after I'd priced out interactive corporate-style whiteboards and determined that they were way out of our price range for a couple of projects... well. Yeah. The resolution wasn't absolutely precise, but it certainly did work. Bottom line: Technology is only useful if it is actually in the hands of real people, and being used. And lots and lots of people have Wiimotes in their (our) hands. :-)

At the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. It starts at noon on Monday, October 22, and goes 'til 6pm on Tuesday October 23. Sounds quite nifty!
