Toy Fair Impressions

Just some quick notes while the experience is fresh in my head:

The Chronicle: 2/9/2007: Caught in the Network

The Chronicle: 2/9/2007: Caught in the Network - Very interesting development here with academics using Tor, software created for keeping your Internet usage private. A professor at Bowling Green, who teaches about the social implications of authorities censoring Net usage, was asked not only to stop using Tor but to not teach his students about it. Apparently, the university's IT policy doesn't have an entry for irony. [My del.icio.us]

Penguin Portfolio

Part of my MFADT application portfolio was a series of animated penguin videos that I made using Blender, most of them in the fall of 2005. I'm a little obsessed with these birds, but I can't quite say why. They're just so damn funny.

Anyway, now they're all "you tubed."
