So I got to hang out with them for a while, and see Spider beat on red-hot metal. Randomly saw bentwright there and I can verify that he is, indeed, made of atoms, not bits. I actually talked shop with Eli for a bit, and we'll be conspiring to get climate data from A to B better and faster. Perlick joined us there later on, and when we were done I went with him over to hang out with Seppo to hear his game design talk, which was usefully insightful. Then we got dinner at a diner and came down to Perlick & Jofish's place here in Mountain View, where I spent the night last night. Showed Perlick some Spaced and failed to work on my poster, but I did finally get to it late night and this morning, and now I think it's done, I just have to let it rest a bit and do a final edit pass to be sure I haven't said anything totally stupid.
We're off to brunch in a bit, then to TimeCube for Jess & Colin's holiday party. My big question is: you can do hexagonal and square Japanese weave chainmail; can you also do a quasicrystalline Penrose tiling? I think you can, you should be able to do it with any tiling of the plane that's based on convex polyhedra, but I'll have to jigger some graphics about to show it.
