At talk by Michael Polan (of Omnivore’s Dilemna) at BGIedu at the IslandWood Campus. http://twitpic.com/y9ylg
Michael Polan compares US food culture to religion “nutritionism”. Roots in our puritan denial of pleasure—food must be useful.
Michael Polan: “The biggest product of the industrial food industry is patients for the health care industry.”
Michael Polan: “My rules are simple: eat simple foods, less of them, mostly plants.”

One thing I like about the Noir City film festival at the Castro are the women in the audience wearing sexy 30s/40s outfits & rad stockings!
Featured last on the big Castro screen at the Noir City film festival “The Endless Night: A Valentine to Film Noir” http://bit.ly/4wRIrv
The noir homage “Endless Night” premiered at Noir City was created by 20 year old using iMovie http://bit.ly/4wRIrv She must be excited!

Raven, Dom and I are doing iPadDevCamp on April 2nd, the weekend after the release of the iPad http://bit.ly/ipaddevcamp
One essential thing to remember about the iPad is that like the iPhone the software upgradeable. iPhone OS 3.2 now, but 4.0 maybe summer.
I may have a part-time job for someone with a Masters in Library Science (or equiv) who is knowledgeable about the Social Web. Let me know.
Have new iPad SDK — looking forward to installing it, but frustrated that once again I can’t write about it until NDA is over.
I hope that iPad enhanced version of iPhone Kindle App is allowed into the AppStore. Competition forced good changes last week from Amazon.

I’m fascinated with this Amazon/Macmillan fight, with Apple in the corner egging it on. Good arguments on all sides, thus my RTs of best.
The real challenge to Macmillan in the long run is not Amazon, but when a major author (say Stephen King or J K Rowling) goes direct.
For the iPad I’m intrigued about not just ebooks & emagazines, but interactive education tools, eRPGs, etc. http://mashable.com/apple-tablet
