webvisions 2005 (july 15th, portland) looks like it might be worth a look. they might also be looking for another speaker or two if you have anything worth saying - this year's topic is 'convergence', roughly incorporating 'beyond the desktop'.

19th April, 9:33 am

google maps now includes the uk. although the entry url is different, it's the same app. you can scroll left to find america. no satellite photos yet, beyond the whole country. hope they get those online soon.

6th April, 12:01 am

4th April, 11:22 am

i'm not sure whether i'm looking forward to the ppg anime that seems to be in the pipeline (pic1, pic2) (found by lealea at ). the characters seem a little over-characterised, but that much was inevitable. the result will be interesting, if not great.

3rd April, 11:18 pm

i was looking for the lego version of 2001 from awhile back, but came across this version which is both a 2001 parody in lego, and a commentary on the evolution of lego itself.
