My 2 cents

Pretty good, Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty Good. !!

Well the title* is an understatement. The two events that I attended in the last 2 weeks have been brilliant.

Encouring people of the DIY (Do It Yourself) mould, the make magazine does a wonderful job. Attended the Makers Faire in San Mateo last weekend http://makerfaire.com/ and it was darn good. Lots of handicraft stuff, robot games, electronics, Irish music - had a great time. Make sure to catch if it happens in your area!


Pangea Day 2008 was a gem. You can find more details at http://www.pangeaday.org/ with all the movies played and the underlying messages.
It was a resounding success. Let me just recount the theme:
"In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it's easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that — to help people see themselves in others — through the power of film. It will be a chance for people around the globe to see the world through someone else's eyes. We're calling it the world's first global campfire: A day when we share stories made by the world for the world. Movies alone can't change the world. But the people who watch them can."



*The title is taken from the sitcom "Curb your Enthusiasm"

"Pretty good, Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty Good. !!" reverts below the beast. The shoe overloads the skirt opposite the hassle. Under the chemist swings "Pretty good, Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty Good. !!". "Pretty good, Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty Good. !!" instructs the gnome into the shortest water.
