I can't say enough how impressed I am with your and the other lynda.com tutorials that I have watched. I am a former math teacher, so I'm a pretty tough critic when it comes to teaching techniques. I have recommended the course to others in our company who are using it too.

Your article is easily the best piece I've read on Bitcoin, and its safe to say I've read a thousand or more. Here's to hoping there's more great stuff coming.

Overcoming the Uncanny Valley

A feature article about the perceptual gap between images of real human faces near-human representations.

Abstract: "What makes some near-human characters scary while others are merely laughable? More important, why do some human and humanlike characters fail to arouse our sympathy? Visual artists and roboticists face these questions as they seek to alternately frighten and endear. Recent attempts to create accurate human replicas have brought these questions to the fore with increased urgency."

Keynote from DrupalCamp Western NY

Keynote presentation from the inaugural two-day event, "DrupalCamp Western NY" in Buffalo, 14 October 2011. The event's theme was "Hello, Universe", so I riffed on how the Drupal community is growing (beyond the more common "Hello, World"), and how its culture will inevitably change as a result. Video by Stephen Rosenthal, http://caramaxstudio.com. Appearance sponsored by Acquia; at the time I was that company's Content and Communications Director.
