Marks on mpesce@hyperreal.org, and @mpesce on Twitter. His title is 'Smoke Signals'. He's involved in VRML, and doing other 3D stuff at various universities. He's been a regular judge on ABC Inventors, on Triple J and on ABC TV. He's entire talk is all CC, and rated PG-13.

He mentioned that he likes to do talks that don't pay him, because he gets to say what he really thinks. He first learned BASIC programming on a risc CPU. He's written code for pretty much all the CPU families and micro controllers. In the 90's he read Neuromancer, and he went to Siliocon Valley and started a company to start a 3D environment for gaming. The company bailed. Just like all the other VR companies. They all failed because they wanted to win the whole game, but they all locked it up with patents, and they all failed.

17 years ago this week he folded some software together to come up with a 3D browser. This was the start of VRML. 

A resource shared is a resource squared. It took him 1 billion seconds before he understood the value of open source. He finds the more he gives away the richer he gets. But he doesn't measure richness in just his banking statement.

He talked about how he gave up smoking. He described how behaviour imitation leads to the spread of smoking. If you are surrounded by smokers/obese people then the chances are that you will smoke, or be fat. Divorce spreads by memesis. What we choose to imitate is determined by how we choose to associate with.

Marks talk had a lot in it, and came at us very fast, so I'm not going to be able to write this blog post just now, perhaps I'll be able to come back to it.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
I figured I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though!
Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?
If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is
very much appreciated.

When I initially left a comment I seem to
have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added-
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
recieve 4 emails with the same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
Kudos!

Hi, I think your site could possibly be having browser compatibility issues.
When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however,
if opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Other than that, great site!
