Advanced uses of technology.

Here's a cutesy story.. A woman at work told me that her six year old son was sitting at their computer on Google Earth. He'd been on there for a while so she asked him what he was doing. "I'm looking for Santa's house in the North Pole" he replied. Apparently he spent hours on Google Earth trying to located Santa's house.

Eug's last night in Melbourne.

Thought I'd post a couple of pictures from Eug's last night in Melbourne. It was great to see Eug again and I hope to see more people in Melbourne soon! :)

A couple of weeks ago I presented at a conference with colleagues of mine. The presentation was about some innovative work we've been doing. I'd never professionally presented something to people before! But the presentation went better than I could have hoped for. People were very receptive to what we had to say and we were applauded at the end. :) We even had people come up afterwards to tell us we should charge people to teach them about what we are doing and one woman asked us if we'd come teach her university students next year (for which we'd be paid). :)

Rooftop bar.

Last Sunday I went to Heath's birthday gathering at the rooftop bar in the city. It was like going to a private beach, in the middle of the city, that was high in the sky! Fake grass covered the ground and beach deck chairs were there to sit on. With drinks in hand and lounging outdoors - it was a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. And I never knew it existed till now!
