Minecraft at the NY Film Festival

Yesterday, we were alerted to a Minecraft happening today at the NY Film Festival at the Lincoln Center. Two famed Minecraft "builders", Kupo and Ridgedog, spoke about the genesis and evolution of the VoxelBox server project and how story-telling plays an important role in the creation of new Minecraft worlds. The VoxelBox community of designers have created some incredible things with Minecraft. Pierce and his friend Ian and I attended only to discover that two more of his friends had decided to attend too. After the event, Kupo and Ridgedog met with their fans at the Lincoln Center Plaza's fountain.

Happy Birthday Pierce!

What We Did On Our Summer Vacation

A little overdue but better late than never: here are a selection of pictures from our annual family vacation to Vancouver Island, BC and Alberta. We followed the same time-tested relaxation formula as previous years: some time with the Bond family at Arbutus Ridge on the Island, some time with the immediate family in Tofino on the Island's west coast, some time with the Wall family in Cochrane Alberta, and camping in Alberta's Kananaskis Provincial Park. It was three weeks but it still felt too short!
