foo camp

I'm in Sebastopol, California at Tim O'Reilly's weekend Foo Camp. Interesting group of people here.

It's nice to finally meet Doc and Dave and Scoble and Larry and Scott and another Scott among lots and lots of others. And it's been years since I've seen Stewart and Kevin.

Most interesting session so far: Bernie Krause's lecture on recording environmental sounds outdoors, and his analysis of biophony (the cooperative symphony of sounds that animals and plants make), geophony (the sounds of nature, i.e., wind, falling rocks, etc.), and anthrophony (the racket humans and human-made machines make).

More details (and maybe some photos) later. Posted by brian at October 11, 2003 09:45 AM
