Northern Voice 2010 — Location, mysteries, and making visible

…and 48 hours later, Northern Voice for 2010 is a wrap. Thanks to the hard work of all the organizers, who pulled off an incredible conference once again. This was my first year as a non-Moosecamp speaker. It was also the it was held not during reading week (owing to the Vancouver Olympics) and in […]

My Northern Voice 2010 Itinerary

Northern Voice is just about upon us! As usual, the schedule is absolutely packed with unbelievable sessions…too many to choose from, even!

It seems to be working a bit better than my attempts to write commentary and analysis on transit to this blog, for some hazy ill-defined reasons regarding the association of this blog with my online self-identity, and — perhaps more plausibly — the small size of the […]

Web Wednesday canoodling

Napoleon Biggs and Chris Justice during the sofa interview portion of the evening. I decided to take a “work” (if you can call it work) day in the dwindling days of my time here in Hong Kong by attending the monthly Web Wednesday social-mixer-type last night. Thanks to Napoleon Biggs, the organizer, and everyone I […]
