Notes for 9/18/2005

Seems like the last week has just flown by, but maybe it’s just me.

  • Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everyone! Thanks for dinner Yeo & Family!
  • My favorite social bookmarking tool turned two years old this week. Happy Birthday!
  • It was announced this week that Northern Voice is happening again in February.
  • I watched part of the Emmys tonight, and I couldn’t help but think that awards ceremonies are just an excuse for the networks and celebrities to try to convince us that they care about the disaster du jour. I long for the awards ceremony where no one thanks God for their award, and no current event is mentioned in any detail other than perhaps in passing. Otherwise, why don’t we just post the winners online with a generic acceptance speech – “I’d like to thank God, and express my deepest condolences for the families affected by 9/11 or Katrina or Iraq or etc.”
  • If you know of any podcasting projects or experiments at the University of Alberta, let me know!
  • Speaking of the UofA, there are some good suggestions for wireless in the comments of this post.
  • Microsoft’s PDC ended Friday, and while I wasn’t there, it sure was amazing. Lots of excellent stuff coming. I agree with Brad Feld – 2006 Will Be The Year of Microsoft.
  • There is no “grilled cheese” on the menu at Denny’s, but if you ask for it they’ll make it anyway, and it’s damn good. One day I’m going to start my own grilled cheese restaurant, something like Grilled Cheese NYC.
