Hope you had a nice long weekend, celebrating Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, and Family Day! Here are my weekly notes:
- The opening ceremonies for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics on Friday night were pretty impressive! I’ve been enjoying some of the Olympics so far. Can’t wait for more hockey.
- Sharon and I went to see Valentine’s Day on 2/14. It wasn’t the greatest movie ever, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as we had braced ourselves for either. Sharon wrote more about our Valentine’s Day here, including photos of the loaf of bread I baked for her!
- Is 2010 the year of the neighbourhood? I’m excited about some new stuff at ShareEdmonton related to this.
- A couple of food related things: Jamie Oliver’s TED Talk, which is definitely worth watching, and Why Most Food Could Never Be “Local”.
- This is interesting: students at Calgary public schools will be able to use their own Wi-Fi network starting this fall. Apparently Facebook and Twitter will be blocked. Again, this seems like an exercise in futility when every child has a cell phone with Internet capabilities!
- Though I don’t use it as much anymore, I have been a Windows Live Messenger user since day one, so I really enjoyed this history of the service.
- I finally registered for Reboot Alberta this week. Looking forward to it!
