So yesterday, I was a part of a teleconference with a group in Siberia. It was supposed to be, from my understanding, students from SFAI's sister school. However, it ended up being mostly head-of-state types. It was interesting, none the less, to be discussing my work, and the work of others, across continents and cultures; it would have been more interesting, however, if we had been able to talk with those who were actually in the business of cultural production. And on a completely unrelated note, I installed Apple's new operating system, Leopard, today. You know that you are a dork when a) you are excited about that sort of shit and b) you are most excited about the new tabbing in Terminal, and the new themes that it has.
