GENERATOR: Pestilence Part 1 is an experimental multimedia look at the AIDS epidemic. This installment, which offers an original story rooted in both biology and mythology, is performed immersively by a cast that includes members of the queer punk "kitchen band" NYOBS. 
Expressionistic and experimental, the narrative begins with a spark of energy triggering life on the planet. A cluster of single celled organisms develop and evolve into clusters of pre-humans. Science and mythology merge to create an origin narrative. GENERATOR climaxes in a lyrical expression of language sung by the African spider god of stories, Anansi.

Disappear + Margaret Explosion (Rochester 2020)

Well, I could write about all of my experiences in Rochester and I could explain how I unexpectedly ended up there last week and how nice it was to stay with friends and listen to music and talk and keep the fire going, but, for now, I will simply share the two videos made.

GeoPose Modern ARIA/MIT

Test

Unofficial notes on defining GeoPose, based on the OGC/SWG press release

Hello. Stephen Black here. This is my personal, self-initiated, self-funded and unofficial project to create accurate and simplified definitions about GeoPose. I am doing this because:

  1. I do (worldwide) presentations about AR, and need to be able to explain GeoPose clearly, and with technical accuracy. Short definitions increase comprehension, work well on Powerpoint, and save speaking time for other topics.
  2. GeoPose and AR are topics for journalists, bloggers and reporters, not all of whom have technical backgrounds. Clear and simple definitions allow for the maximum flow of accurate information.
  3. Although my ultimate goal is to create AR experiences/produce AR apps, I am now an AR educator/evangelist: speaking mainly to general audiences. It is clear that AR is not easily understood. GeoPost will be easy to use, but, for now, the concept will likely be intimidating to many people.
  4. English is not always the first language within the tech community.
  5. I'm a writer: I like using the fewest words to create most results.

So... all comments are welcome, and needed. By the time I give my presentation at ARIA/The MIT Media Lab, I hope to present the following ideas with the input and approval of those who are far more knowledgeable than I am.

Of course , once the following are clear, I hope the information can be shared by anyone, anywhere. I will also include the information in my ebook guide to AR project, which is updated as often as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention to this.

A slide similar to the one above will be shown in my presentations, as well as one which credits the OARC (and any other organizations or individuals).

Please comment upon the italicized sentence. Thank you.
