The 19th Annual SEA (Self Employment in the Arts) Conference has issued its Call for Presenters (http://www.selfemploymentinthearts.com/presenter-information). The 2019 SEA Conference will be held February 23rd & 24th, 2019 in Chicago.
Having participated as a panelist in the last two SEA conferences I can heartily endorse the quality of this conference for creative professionals, especially those just starting out in life.

Last night I had some vanilla ice cream with a Bumbu rum pour over. It was surprisingly tasty. #icecream #rum

Ouch. A chart from a presentation given at the
2018 Illinois Financial Forecast Forum: Private Sector Views that will Impact the Public Sector sponsored by the Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies (a former employer of mine). Clearly Illinois has serious issues. Unfortunately only percentages are given in the chart and not dollar amounts or an indicator of what fraction of the Illinois economy each of these sectors represents. #illinois #economics

A processed Landsat image of Banks Island, Canada in June. This image is a candidate for inclusion in my Earth as art book project.

The impact of applying a single tone curve adjustment to an image using the Rawtherapee image processing program. The source (bottom) is a Landsat image of the area of Baja California as processed by the USGS.

Watched In Search Of Artificial Intelligence on the History Channel. Unfortunately it was 20% content and 80% sensationalism (being kind). Not too surprising given the overall nature of their programming these days.

Wow, I never realized that the Philippines had an ocean-going airport: Masbate Airport in the Sibuyan Sea. Well, at least that's what Google Earth says.

Time once again to vote for officers in the American Economic Association election. Let's see - do I vote for Janet Yellen or myself as a write-in candidate? It'll be a tough call.

The ISDC photographer took this photograph of me speaking with Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Blue Origin fame at the VIP reception at the National Space Society's International Space Development Conference. Also in the picture are Ronnie Lajoie, Burt Dicht, and Dale Amon.

At the International Space Development Conference in LA, taking a photo with Cara Gee - the actress who plays Drummer on The Expanse - I invited my friend Ken Ruffian to join us. The photo was taken by Christian Meza, CTO of Aerolite Meteorites.
