Small pleasures and glimpsed texts

I've been having a wonderful time offline, mostly because I've had the pleasure of spending each and every day with loved ones and I've become completely smitten with my brilliant and ridiculously good-looking new kitten, named after my hero Enid Coleslaw.

For my birthday, my father gave me a stunning 1959 Minox B subminiature camera and I can't wait to start taking pictures as soon as the crazy 25 ASA - 8x11mm film arrives. I've read Eightball #23 and watched every episode of Freaks and Geeks - and loved every minute of each. To top things off, each day has also come with a kick-ass soundtrack.

But getting back online today pointed me at part two of HorizonZero 16: Wear, which contains my interview with Maggie Orth on aesthetics and technology, as well as Katherine Moriwaki's article, Between the Skin and the Garden. And if you missed Joey Berzowska's article on Intimate Electronics in the first part of the issue, it's well worth a look.

I also see that the papers have been posted for the Ubicomp in the Urban Frontier workshop at Ubicomp 2004 (taking place in a couple of weeks). I won't be making the trip to Nottingham as I'd anticipated, so it's nice to be able to read them. I'd prefer individual papers, but here's the Full Proceedings (PDF). After I've digested the whole lot I'll post my thoughts.

Back next week.
