  • Blog Post: IC08: Imagine Cup 2008 – Day Zero

    We’ll we all made it to Paris. I got in last night, and Karo arrived with most of the Australian Winners, Team SOAK this morning. Unfortunately, due to a visa mixup, Dimaz will only be arriving on Friday morning – probably a little too late, not to mention jet-lagged to participate in the first round...
  • Blog Post: Up the Mighty Swan

    Once all the demos were delivered, we were treated to an evening out on the Swan River. As you can see, we were treated like kings, cruising downstream with the magnetic views of Perth in the background. We reached the apex of the cruise at about sunset. Watching a host of Kite surfers do their stuff...
  • Blog Post: Blogging on an aeroplane

    Even on my amazingly light and compact Toshiba R500, this is eminently possible in Economy on a long-haul flight. Eminently inconvenient on a short-haul flight. My display is dangerously jammed up against the reclined seat ahead, the keyboard angled over my portly tummy, my elbows jammed into my sides...
  • Blog Post: Wide Awake Developers: Steve Jobs Made Me Miss My Flight

    I caught this blog as commented on Guy Kawasaki's Truemors Site. Not only do I empathise, I too have been a participant in the current US "war against terror" as conducted through Airport Security (check out this blog ), but I had to laugh. Wide Awake Developers: Steve Jobs Made Me Miss My...
  • Blog Post: Anything's Possible

    Talk about inspiring!! This morning our keynote was from Michio Kaku , a Theoretical Physicist and Futurist. We looked into advances in wearable computing, from glasses, to clothes, jewellery even. In a world where the average silicon chip costs less than a penny, less than paper. The future of medicine...
  • Blog Post: True Evangelism

    I went to a session today entitled "True Evangelism." Rather than a breakout, this was a "chalk-talk." Which is to say interactive, with everyone able to give their perspective and ask their questions. We covered a lot of ground, from initiatives that various teams around the world...
  • Blog Post: Morning 1 at TechReady6

    This mornings keynote was hosted by Norm Judah , CTO for Microsoft Services; and Steve Balmer, CEO of Microsoft. Norm, resplendent in a pink shirt, was his usual clear, fun, and self-effacing self. As for Steve, the electricity and energy of the man. Considering the current negotiations around the Yahoo...

    ...at the conference hotel today http://reviews.cnet.com/7009-7254_7-0.html?CType=2277&ac=925&ISPID=&ISPNAME=&&kbps=54 R 42
  • Blog Post: Trial by Diet

    So a couple of days ago I blogged about my intention, nay, passion to maintain my diet and exercise regime whilst here at the Academic Airlift Conference here in Seattle. I thought I'd give a little visual representation of just how difficult this is proving to be. Here is my average day, and the food...
  • Blog Post: From the ashes...

    At least that's how I felt this morning :) No, no, I didn't have too many beers last night. I did, however, have too little sleep. Yep, a function of being away at a conference, and trying to keep on top of my day job. So what have I been learning thus far? It is the Phoenix that rises from the ashes...
  • Blog Post: Early Mornings, Late Nights

    Well, here I am, in Seattle, and the weather is just as shown on TV (Gray's Anatomy), which is to say cold and wet. I am enjoying being back though. I'm finding it like seeing an old friend. There are still new experiences to enjoy, but a familiarity with the people and my surroundings not to feel alien...
  • Blog Post: The trials of travelling (with a light laptop)

    Just connecting through San Francisco en route to my 2 week study madness in Seattle, and thought I might share my travel experiences. Firstly the flight was superb, at least that which I remember... Y'see I got a 4 seat row to myself, which is arguably better than Business Class, inasmuch as you can...
  • Blog Post: Heading Out

    The time has come for our bi-annual TechReady event. This is a training conference hosted for Microsoft technical roles in Seattle. Typically each MS member gets to go to Seattle once a year, either in the Winter (now) or Summer (Jul/Aug). The conference itself is a huge event, hosted in Seattle to be...
