I was pretty exhausted last night, so here are my weekly notes a little later than normal:
- A couple weeks ago I got defensive on behalf of next generation leaders here in Edmonton. The following week, Marty Forbes and I went for lunch to chat. In today’s Edmonton Sun, Marty wrote: “I am indeed confident there is future greatness living in our city…”
- You’ll never guess how Coca-Cola is defending itself in a lawsuit about the health benefits of Vitaminwater: In a staggering feat of twisted logic, lawyers for Coca-Cola are defending the lawsuit by asserting that “no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage.”
- David Eaves has been blogging lots of great entries on the census debacle here in Canada, such as this one: Your Government *did* just get dumber…
- Gizmodo thinks that Xbox 360 Kinect could be the future of Microsoft, at least as far as interfaces go. Speaking of nifty interfaces, here are a few early concept renderings of the 3D holograms in Iron Man 2.
Yesterday was Slow Food Edmonton’s annual Wild Boar and Beer BBQ, organized this year by Maria and Sharon. The weather was great, and the event went off without a hitch! Yum! You can see all my photos here.
