Perhaps ironically, the competition and barriers I am setting out to tackle make working on Wall Street look like summer camp. The stakes are much higher too because the currency is soul.
Documentary filmmaking is an uncertain, messy, un-businessy business and that’s why so many documentaries never get made. The sheer impossibility of the endeavor can grind a person down. And I was feeling it at the end of March; a little worn down; a little tired from the countless hours that have gone into this project since 2009; a little scared at the opportunity cost of my own labour gone; a little bit doubtful that I had anything to say.
It sounds like self-pity, but it’s actually just exhaustion.
Those of you who know me or have worked with me know that in the parlance of business, I’m a finisher. What this means is, that since I made a commitment to Simon Garland last summer, it doesn’t matter what obstacles were in the way. I would find the K Club, a castle in Ireland. And I would bring a show.
Now, I’m really glad and so I will tell you about why over the next couple of posts.
Thank you, everyone, for tuning in. And may the Force be with you always.
I am having a lazy afternoon in Paris playing with my iPhone before venturing out for dinner with the infamous H&M. Lazy afternoon = sorting out how to get photos from my iPhone directly into this blog post, here. Voila! I adore WordPress!
It has be such an exciting week at the International Kx Conference in Dublin, I don’t know where to start with the story.
I brought a special short video divined from my research material and screened it for about 75 people. The piece was warmly received. Thank goodness. I needed the affirmation because I was feeling overwhelmed and a little discouraged. Documentary film is getting cut from all sides in Canada, grants are getting extremely scarce and at the same time tv airtime is going to reality shows. So even if you scrape together a show, there are fewer opportunities to show it. But never mind. I have received a transfusion of enthusiasm and we have cyberspace… So I am back to my cheery dgaf self.
And finally after all these years… I got to meet… Arthur Whitney. Now that was pretty awesome.
Ok. That’s enough 1 finger blogging From my iPhone. (I am blogging from my iPhone!!!!!)
I’m looking forward to a 2012 that is just as fast paced as 2011. And for whatever it’s worth, I didn’t blog as much as I did last year which is something you will notice in this post of photos. Yes indeed, a picture is worth 1000 words.
In fact, we only made 12 posts for 2011 and in spite of this low showing, my faithful readers, according to a report WordPress sent me last night:
This blog was viewed about 9,700 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I’m thrilled! Rock on!
Happy New Year Everyone! Let’s kick some more ass in 2012.
One aspect of reactive demand programming that sets it apart from other reactive programming models is its support for optimistically working with the predicted future states of signals.Think about a signal that carries the current time in seconds, that you want to display on screen as a clock. The screen should update close to the […]
Just had a nice insight regarding systems that deal with reactively updating (potentially large, structured) values such as RDP:The dynamic output of a process is indistinguishable from a static storage resource (file).In batch systems like Unix, this symmetry is not so deep: the output stream of a process looks somewhat like a file, but the process […]
What if you want to use a big value, like a whole database table or weblog, as a Reactive Demand Programming signal value? This would make it possible to use RDP to orchestrate things like incremental MapReduce pipelines. Here's one weird trick to make it work.In effect, each RDP signal becomes a RESTful server, speaking an HTTP-like […]
It has been observed in a vacuum, that comics spontaneously and randomly disappear, and then equally inexplicably reappear. Please enjoy the following fluctuation. Ladies and gentlemen,the graphical web post you are about to read was not photographed in a studio. There are 8,674,256 stories in the naked city now, and this hasn’t even been one…
