Today's prompt from the January meme is from David MacIver. In October, I gave a keynote talk at PyCode Conference with the title How do Vampires Use the Internet? It was about how fan communities use, repurpose and create technology, and I used my own home fandom of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles as the source for a lot of my examples. The slides are here. I'd really love to share a video of the talk, but it hasn't yet been published online.
Every time I read one of my friend Alex's daily DreamWidth entries, I wish I were also writing them, and so, though I think it's extremely unlikely I'll keep up this habit for long or as regularly as they do, I might as well start. Today is a reasonably good day for it, as David and I were in Bangkok last week and I would also like to write up a blog post about that.
My friend Hayley writes monthly summary posts at her blog, which has always seemed like a good idea to me, so I'm copying it. What did I get up to in January?
