A brief roundup of the last two weeks

I'm going to be self-indulgent for a moment. Today, I do not have any exciting ideas or projects to share, any neat graphical thingies. Today, I am going to tell you very briefly about the last two weeks and why I've just spent the last three days sleeping.

A little over two weeks ago, I was in France. In Poitiers, to be precise, attending the most excellent 2010 edition of Make Art. And it was absolutely excellent. I spoke about Libre Graphics Magazine. You can, in fact, see that talk here. Despite being the last talk of the day, there was a pretty astounding amount of energy in the audience. And people were delightfully receptive. So, good. That, for your time keeping records, was the 6th of November.

I spent the 7th and 8th of the month frantically working on the above mentioned Libre Graphics Magazine. Originally slated to be released on the 8th, we decided, for the sake of quality to push the release date back by a couple days. That Wednesday, the 10th, I spent the day in a recording studio, first recording then watching the mixing of the narration for my new (and still not really done) project, When We Were Bigger Than We Are Now, which is a co-production of the National Film Board of Canada and Studio XX. And that's what the remainder of the week was made up of: Libre Graphics Magazine and When We Were Bigger Than We Are Now.

By the 16th, Libre Graphics Magazine 1.1 was out and ready to go, with the PDF off to the print shop, too. I spent a large chunk of the 17th working on publicity for that, which had some pretty good yields. We got mentioned on LWN.net, which was a truly great thing.

On the 18th, When We Were Bigger Than We Are Now launched at the HTMlles festival. Awesome.

The 19th and 20th, I slept, because a nasty cold decided it was time to catch me up. Today, though, I'm back at it, getting ready to talk about When We Were Bigger Than We Are Now again, tomorrow. So I'm making slides. Which I'll post later. They'll be pretty.

And that, my dear blog, is why I've been so absent.
