So much Googley goodness coming up in Sydney!

First there is the Sydney GAFE Summit on April 16/17 in Burwood. 2 whole days of great keynotes from Juan Deluca, Holly Clark and Kimberley Hall, and amazing workshops from some really talented local educators, delving deep into the Google toolset and how to use it to improve student learning. Details at http://sydney.gafesummit.com.  The event is nearly full but there are still places left if you're quick.

Then there's the GEG Teachmeet coming up on April 29 at Google HQ, another chance to learn more about how Google tools can make education better. And a chance to visit Google Sydney. Nice!

Hoe to see some of you at one or both of these events.
The 3rd Annual EdTechTeam Sydney Summit featuring Google for Education is a regional users summit at Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College, Sydney on April 16 & 17, 2015

This is hilarious... Photoshop is 25 years old, and has come a long way... Here's what happens if you take a bunch of Photoshop experts and give them a copy of Photoshop 1.0 to play with...

I was at uni when the first Macintoshes arrived - our classes moved from terminals running something connected to a VAX minicomputer onto the Macs. We spent about a week playing with Paint, in black and white.

Introduction
I live and work in Sydney, Australia. I have a wide range of interests, passions and curiosities, many of which sit nicely at the intersection of the arts and the sciences, so I tend to keep busy on both sides of my brain. In my current work I help others to discover how various technologies can be used to help us all learn, work and play in richer, more meaningful ways.

Our new favourite sushi place. Simple and unpretentious, but delicious food. Always fresh and tasty, and well made. Big fan of the Crunch Roll, but really, everything we get from here is good.

The food in the bistro is Ok but the prices are quite ridiculous for a club dining experience. I used to eat here quite a bit a few years ago when the prices were reasonable but hardly visit at all any more... I simply don't want to pay good restaurant prices for an average bistro dining experience. Servings are not large and the food is very average.

We eat here a fair bit (both eat in and take away ) and the food is always good. Fresh, hot, tasty. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly and fast, and the food is delicious. The decor is quite nice too.

Meh. It's a McDonalds, right? So you should get the same consistent, predictable service and food that you get at every McDonalds. Except you don't. This one feels seedy and slummy, the service is consistently average at best. Every time I go there the local police are in there picking up food, which I find strange on a number of levels. Overall, just a really ordinary Maccas. If you really feel you want some Maccas, I'd drive down to the nearby Padstow store as its cleaner, better staffed and always feels like a nicer experience. Which is weird considering McDonalds shouldn't really matter where you go, it should be basically the same.

Great Indian food. Always delicious and hot, we get takeaway from here quite a bit and the food is consistently excellent. The butter chicken is amazing, as are most of their curries. The ambience of the eat-in experience is pretty ordinary, but the food is great.

Good pizza at reasonable prices. Friendly people who run the place. Great local delivery service. They also run a loyalty program that gives you a free pizza every so often. Overall our favourite pizza place in the local area.
