Talk went okay, met Shane Holloway (Let 100 OpenGL bindings bloom...)


We're starting to get an embarrassment of OpenGL bindings. PyOpenGL 3.x, Pyglet, Nokia's OpenGL ES and Shane's C-based binding (generated with gccxml) come to mind. PyOpenGL is AFAIK the only PyOpenGL 2.x compatible one, but there really seems to be an interest in the auto-generated C-style interfaces for small projects ...

OLPC talk was extremely good (Not just because it backs up some of my talk's points or because I want to work on it (though that helped)...)


Presentation on the OLPC this morning was great. Sure I already want to work on it, but it rekindled the fire after the many failed attempts to get sugar built so I could start development. If we could afford it (and it wouldn't mess up the customers) I'd so love to go work ...

Well, more precisely, it doesn't seem to work with the ...

Okay, beginning to feel real (Businesses are so inconvenient sometimes...)


The reality of being just 2.5 days away from leaving (and thus having to have the month's work wrapped up) is beginning to sink in. Also just realised it's only 7 days, not 10 (February being rather short). I'm expecting I'll need to sit in the lobby late a couple ...
