It’s February, it must be Dorkbot. It appears that Valentine’s Day is on-deck.

(September 3) The parts of my life that generally go off without a hitch are those whose dates and times are well established long in advance. Primarily these are Python workshops and Dorkbot meetings. This month they were on consecutive days.

After Dorkbot, I finally got a replacement shot for an image I’d put into masthead image rotation. I liked the original shot, but I’d taken it from the wrong angle, and it had a fuzziness that I grew not to care for.

Dorkbot is one of my favorite things to go to. Nobody knows me there;
it’s all fun and no work when you’re on the audience side of the podium.

he's got a lot of heart
His heart beats, you see it in realtime.

You can watch him use the various parts of his brain too.

Yes, Pete has a cup of black coffee in one hand, and a lit cigar in the other, and he’s rollerblading in Central Park.
(he’s wearing the same shirt as last time too)

the man-horse!
Back on Smith St. in Brooklyn, they let some kids decorate the boards used to conceal a construction site. They should do this more often.

Back to Central Park, Pete leads the newbies through the AIDS walk after-crowd.

The cops eventually made them clear out. Surprised?

Finally it was off to visit Josh at the Harold & Kumar Frat House.
