"Internet safety for kids" presentation for parents

Monday, 4 September 2006

I'm presenting a talk on Internet Safety for Kids on behalf of UCount Support Services at the Aberfoyle Uniting Church (42 Sunnymeade Dr, Aberfoyle Park) at 8pm on Monday, 4th September.

I've posted a separate list of links to online resources. I'll try to keep that list updated as required.

Tech-Ed 2006 - Day 3

Saturday, 26 August 2006

Friday was a pretty good day. Some good talks from Mitch on extending Team Foundation Server, and a really interesting final session on Concurrency from Joel Pobar.

The closing keynote ("locknote") was by Dr Frank Soong. He showed some really impressive image and video algorithms that Microsoft Research have been developing. Some pretty smart guys are working there I think.

Next year will be back at the Gold Coast, and I get the impression that I'm not the only one who was a bit disappointed with a few of the things this year. I'm optimistic that they'll do a much better job in Queensland in 2007.

Hopefully they can also get rid of those ridiculous barcode scanners that made us all feel like sheep when ever we entered one of the sessions.

I flew back to Adelaide this morning, and while I enjoyed the conference, it is really nice to be back home with the family again.
