ApolloRanch: Boulder – The Day After

It was raining the entire evening so I left for Boulder fairly early. I actually arrived at the planetarium (the entire conference was inside a planetarium!) 20 minutes early and they hadn’t even begun setting up the registration tables. So I just hung back and had a look at all the materials posted along the walls. Lots of Planetarium articles, prints, and so forth. Not-so-interesting… but it passed the time.

Presenting at the VRA Conference

It should be a fairly interesting panel and I will be demonstrating some of the video tools I’ve authored allowing instructors to produce short clips of longer film materials online, at their leisure, for presentation in the classroom and on the web. For anyone interested in using the Flash Platform, Coldfusion, and Flash Media Server for dynamic video delivery, this should be a panel worth attending! A Burgeoning Beyond Restraint: Delivering
