Attended RejectJS, a supportive and inclusive conference in a cool venue on the river.
It was quite a mixed set of talks but they were all great.
At the end, they announced it would be the last conference. After dConstruct doing the same two weeks previously, I'm getting a bit paranoid.
I especially liked:
Everyone is a rockstar – Using mobile technology in live musical performance, Jocelyn Ho & Drew Petersen
Participatory performance using mobile phones, wifi networks and Kinect. So exciting to see what you can do with current technology and the web and it's limits with a big crowd. Loved the instructions on the phone that guided your individual actions and made you listen for what the conductor was doing.
An often hilarious talk about punch cards, following a passion and getting obsessed with it.
Impressive use of the browser to do science.
Hardware talk and how to teach it.
