Roy Orbison

As long as we're in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello to Roy...

"Mean Woman Blues"...

"Down the Line"...

Rick Nelson

I was listening to, or trying to, Zooey Deschanel sing "Lonesome Town". I started feeling a bit queasy, until hopping over to the youtube to find this much better rendition by the great Rick(y) Nelson...

And here's "Hello, Mary-Lou" for good measure...

Now doesn't that make you feel so much better?

Google Tech Talk - Amy Jo Kim - "Game Mechanics"

I found this enjoyable and useful - this is probably a topic all
software developers should pay some attention to these days...

Facilitation Skills

Merlyn writes up a piece on facilitation skills based on his
participation in AONW 2009 last week...

http://curious-attempt-bunny.blogspot.com/2009/02/aonw-2009-facilitation-skills.html

One of the "adds" we came up with in our host's retrospective last
Thursday was to add a page (on the wiki, in the packet, somewhere) on
facilitation skills for people interested in hosting a session at the
next AONW event.

Looks like Merlyn's got a good start, and hopefully we can get him to
help as we work on this... maybe a session during or before an XPDX
meeting.
