  • I'm not as far as I wanted to be yet, because life, and politics, and and and... But I can show off my Daydream VR spaceship thing with a Chromecast, that'd be pretty fun for a bit :)

  • Is it possible for anyone to record the talks and make them available for those who miss the meet-ups? This weeks talks look very interesting & much to my disdain I will not be able to attend this week
