Hey livestream team, all mics are left open after the talks. It feels a bit odd being able to listen in on private conversations once q&a finished.

Some weeks ago I read a short story by Robin Sloan. Since it keeps coming back to my mind, I scanned my copy. It's a short read, but it resonated really well with me.

@th inspired by your tradfri hacking ... ikea just launched the frekvens led matrices, I think they need some hacking too ;-)
I hope to get a few this week, let's see what we come up with.

Tomorrow my daughter turns 9.
I started my PhD before she was born.

Just found out there's a demoparty happening in Brussels yesterday and today ... in case anyone reads this, is there some public part still happening today?

Been enjoying the recent Power of Ten episode featuring @changeist - there's a lot of good stuff being said. I primarily like the idea of 'understanding through narrative' and the reflections made on user centered design.
