We will be having another meeting of the Madison, WI CocoaHeads group tomorrow, March 24th, at 6:30 PM on the UW-Madison campus. We'll be in the Computer Sciences Building, room CS 1240 once again.

I'll be talking again, but this time it will be a more focused presentation on Core Animation and all the neat stuff you can do with it. It's been a little while since the last meeting, due to spring break, but I hope to have the same large group as last time.

Pittcon 2009 logo

I'm going to be exhibiting SonoPlot's products at Pittcon next week in lovely Chicago, IL. Pittcon is one of the largest scientific equipment shows in the U.S. I'll be manning our booth (#762) from Monday (March 9) through Thursday (March 12).

As always, you're more than welcome to stop by and chat. During the quiet periods of these shows, it's just me and our robot, and it doesn't say much. Unfortunately, I believe they do charge for entry to this show on every day but Thursday.

Even though the vast majority of the visitors to my site seem to be stopping by for the Cocoa / Amazon EC2 writeups, I thought I should let those of a scientific persuasion know about a molecular modeling blog I came across. The Macromolecular Modeling Blog caught my eye when they mentioned Molecules recently, so I figured I should return the favor. For any molecular biologists / bioinformaticists out there, this looks to be a very solid resource.

Also, anyone with an interest in nanotechnology needs to start reading K. Eric Drexler's blog. I've stated before how much of a fan I am of his work.
