Who was it that said holidays are for the children, not the parents ? Whoever it was, he/she is right ! And it is neither the parents, nor the children that are to blame for this, it is our system of outsourcing children (and ourselves) during the whole year and then being put together (both sides looking upon the other as alien) for several weeks, often in a strange situation.
That's quite enough psychology for one day ... last Tuesday I was honoured (honored too) to be able to give a Webcast for O'Reilly. I must say I was very nervous, my laptop made a horrible sound and I couldn't hear or see the audience (the latter two are normal), so I have no idea how it went, you can get the nCode example module I used on https://dl.dropbox.com/u/65770556/urn.org.elbeesee.demo.ncode-1.0.0.zip.
You can see the slides that accompanied the webcast on http://netkernelbook.org/wink/wiki/webcast_20120807.
A recording was made and as soon as that is available I'll add the link to this post.
Enjoy your holidays !
P.S. There is a slightly more advanced webcast on August 28th. Read about it and register on http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/e/2261. Since the nCode stuff went down well, I will only use nCode on that webcast too (the NetKernel equivalent of : Look ma, no hands !).
P.P.S. No, I haven't gone soft. Word reached me that the white on black hurt the eyes of some of my potential readers.
