The Meeting Film Festival – Aspen

Post by blogger | October 3, 2008      

Heading up to Aspen in a few hours to take in “The Meeting — Celebration of Snow Film and Culture.” Should be interesting, as not only will we partake in movies that vary from Tanner Hall to TGR, but they’ve got a series of seminars, starting with today’s “…Challenges of Changing Technology,” and tomorrow’s “Unification of Competitive Freeskiing.”

Should make for some good blog fodder, especially hearing about how comp freeskiing is getting beyond providing random canon, fodder?.

I’m looking forward to this as a sort of re-emergence of Lou the blogger from Lou the computer website geek who’s been buried for the last 12 weeks in the basics of changing nearly everything that makes appear on your computer screen and actually function at least most of the time. (Not to worry, I’ve still got a long list of geekology, so I’ll tackle that before writing any 2,000 word screeds on how global warming is not causing hangnails in Norway, despite the scientific proof otherwise).

More later.
