Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.

Bragging rights
Kempton's first feature-length documentary Long Hair Revolution (2005) is preserved in Library and Archives Canada's permanent collection "for the benefit of present and future generations".

[via Shirley Tsoi] //一段10分鐘的紀錄片,導演用心的跟我私下約了三次,專訪當天談了三個半小時,十一月跟拍排練,十二月演前準備,到演出當天,一月份到家裡拍媽媽一桌好菜三姐妹吃飯說笑⋯⋯時間換來了一個交心的朋友,呈現的,香港電台電視部製作「好想藝術」,年廿九晚陪你團年,有我和好友家人。感謝攝影師阿軍,放任的蓬頭垢面因為知道鏡頭捕捉的世界無論如何都會美,因為用心,也謝謝收音的阿滔,安靜的聆聽著。//

Part 1 of 2 //"Today, we are dealing with the son of al-Qaeda. If we don't get the next piece right — and the next piece is not the military piece, it's that political piece — we will be dealing with the grandson of al-Qaeda." // http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/defence-harjit-sajjan-ottawa-forum-speech-1.3425515
Canada must factor in the "ripple effect" new decisions could have on security around the world as it considers future contributions to the fight against Islamic extremists, says Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, who is conducting a full review of the country's defence policies.

(video and 360 experience) Cool Ai Weiwei Royal Academy of Arts exhibition experience online. Worth checking out. https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/exhibition/ai-weiwei-360
Ai Weiwei at the RA was the cultural phenomenon of the year. If you weren’t lucky enough to see the show, this is your chance to experience it online.

社會學家會告訴我們,過去香港是一個移民城市,是逃避政治之地,香港人口裏不談政治,卻會把所愛所惡投射在流行文化之中,同哭同笑。 黃霑也是一個移民,1949年共產黨上台,他的父親就帶著一家五口逃到香港,成為當年香港這個英國殖民地無數移民故事的其中之一。 香港跟黃霑一樣,與中國的關係複雜糾纏。民族、文化在香港人意識中根深蒂固,但我們對時局政治卻若即若離。這種情緒,長久隔在香港和內地之間。 當大家都認為黃霑的創作十分香港本土口味之時,他對中國的種種感情,他對中華文化之熱愛嚮往,原來早已融入音符文字之間。黃霑晚年時透露他對中國幾十年來的情感起落,如何跟隨中港互動而潛藏在他不少作品之中。這種種的投射,正正入木三分地側寫着香港與內地交往的一個個里程。說黃霑的創作「好香港」,但同時亦「好中國」,到底,也是說不清。還是讓黃霑自己向大家剖白吧。

The child math prodigy could have devoted his considerable brain power to building a billion-dollar startup. Instead, he spends most of his time picking fights with airlines over passenger rights
