Spelling Test

Perhaps it's a little thing, but for me it's not: Shared words are the basis of shared understanding and a culture. In our case, we can't seem to agree on our spelling of fulldome/full-dome/full dome after more than ten years. (Or we're lousy spellers... :)
Toward creating shared usage - or at least some peer-pressure and spelling hints- I set up another spelling poll on the Yahoo dist list:…

DomeFest Plans

Hey all,




If you haven't gotten the news (and how could you when there's a communicator like me in the mix???) we're not doing a DomeFest this year. Instead, we're working to build more support and a greater program for 2011 when we'll reconvene in September.



For DF11, we'll continue curating the Juried Show and 'Making of' programs with the same philosophy of creating programs addressing production techniques, story/content innovation,…

FullBuilding?

At ARTS Lab, I'm always blathering on about fulldome as not only an important medium* outright, but also as a launch-point for learning to design for all the crazy places and ways we're splaying pixels beyond the 4:3 and 16:9 frames and personal-to-multiplex display scales. On that point, check out this Times Square monstrosity:…
