Since meeting two of the original chip designers who worked on the Apple-Motorola-IBM joint venture that produced the PowerPC chips (used in Apple Computers) I've had Austin on my mind again, as it was in Austin where it all got started
. I used to spend most of my time at Halcyon
which was the former location of Ruta Maya
. Apparently, back then, Ruta Maya had just recently closed down (in preparation for its move south -- now complete
). In fact, this blog started when I was in Austin. I tried to get blogging earlier
but it never quite got going the way I wanted.
The old-school Alamo Drafthouse
is just around the corner from Halcyon. One cool thing (among many) about the Drafthouse: they have an LCD projector used to play various computer-based animations and clips they get from the web (and who knows where else) as part of their movie previews.
And, of course, lest I forget, I was introduced to Gyrotonic in Austin where I observed a friend as he received his very first series of sessions on the Gyrotonic
system 'pulley tower' by Ms. Audra Williams
. Gyrotonic is kind of like 'catsup - it goes good with everything.
And my blog is now firefox happy and I think might even validate as true HTML 4.0.
