What a waste: Kindle and Interactive Fiction

I think its a terrible waste that the Kindle doesn't support Interactive Fiction. I would love the be able to play IF games untethered, and IF is the right game for the Kindle which excels at presenting text and falls flat at anything that requires a real refresh rate (the LCD screen refreshes very, very slowly).

I know the Kindle has a development kit; I wonder what it would take to get IF games playing on it?

New testing lab for Tapestry Workshop @ SkillsMatter (London, Oct 5th)

SkillsMatter Logo I'm once again partnering with SkillsMatter to teach my full Tapestry workshop.

I've just finished up the materials for the new lab that covers testing of Tapestry components and applications. I'm quite pleased with how it came out. I'm really looking forward to this training. According to SkillsMatter, there's still room in the class for a couple of more students ... if you want to get started with Tapestry, or you want to get your Tapestry Ninja Skills going, this is the way to do it, fast!

The class will be taught at SkillsMatter's offices in London, from October 5th through the 8th.

Tapestry at JavaOne 2010

Just a reminder: I'll be presenting Tapestry: State of the Union this coming Monday, Sep 20th at 8:30 PM, in Moscone South 309.

Because of pressing demands and client commitments, I'm only going to be in San Francisco briefly: from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday evening.

Blogger finally checks for spam!

This is a big relief for me, because every time I posted a new entry, I'd get half a dozen spams, in chinese. Their new spam filter seems to work nicely. I may eventually open up comments again for non-registered users.
