w00t: Etcon 2004
So life appears to be very up and down at the moment.
Today: saw the final film in the Cremaster cycle - Cremaster 3 - and it totally filled my brain with experiences. A refreshing three hour jolt to the system. Dinner of burnt ends and baby-back ribs at Bodeans, one of the best (only?) BBQ houses in London (I'm trying to get my team at work to go along for their Festival of Pork). Late night stroll through Trafalgar Square; quite special at night, a few people, no pigeons, fountains lit and in full flow. Threads on BBC4.
And one of my talks for Etcon has been accepted, after initial rejection - "35 ways to find your location" - I give a quizzical look at Rael, and be thankful I didn't lay off my dancing girls and indoor fireworks. I'm the last talk in the conference, so I need all the gimmicks I can get! I guarantee that if you use places or location in your apps, for real geography or context, you'll find the talk useful, and maybe even enlightening. If you don't use location for anything, come along and see what you're missing!
