Yesterday, York University Libraries held a debate in the Scott Library entitled, "Be it resolved the blog replace the book?" The debate turned out pretty awesome, and somehow the team arguing for the book won!? (Some might say it was because of @adr’s compelling closing statements.)
Along with livestreaming the debate on ustream, I pulled together (a special thanks to Ed Summers, and his very permissive licensing) a little node.js application to display a "twitterfall" of the hashtag for the event.
Hit a bit of a wall yesterday getting checksums working when ingesting content into Islandora, so I made a Gource video of the Islandora commits in my fork of the git repo.
Music by RipCD (@drichert) and myself.
How’d I do it?
I wanted to use the Gravatars, so I used this handy little perl script. Hopped into the Islandora git repo, and ran:
gource –user-image-dir .git/avatar/ -s 3 –auto-skip-seconds 0.
