Skeleton in my closet

It's a little known fact that I was once paid to work as a mime - in a shopping mall.

Technology to music

An old friend of mine from out East is continuing some very interesting - and frankly, quite geeky - musical work involving aging technology such as old dot-matrix printers. The National Post has published an article on that work titled, Dot Matrix Symphony: Turning defunct technology into art.

Having seen one of the earliest performances of that work back in Ottawa, I can say I knew him when... (how's that for a cheezy statement?)

Teachers Strike

I attended a rally for striking teachers in Alberta, Monday morning. I've written a brief article about it, posted to the Alberta Independent Media Centre, titled "Massive support brought out for striking teachers at rally in Calgary."

I've also posted a bunch of photos of the rally and the march. I also did a QuickTime VR panorama from the center of the rally.
