By now you probably already know that my friend and bandmate (Guitar Hero and regular) Tom7 successfully defended his PhD. It wasn't much of a defense, by which I mean there was very little attacking going on, but it was a very good talk. He explained ML5, which could called a web programming language, even though it is so much more. I recommend you check out the talk even if you don't know what it means at least to see the pretty colors. Demos too!
