So this year I have decided to launch a number of new projects of the course of the year, not that I am loosing focus with ongoing projects just that I have a number of projects that I have been sitting on for a while and I would like to get going on them.

The first one to see fruition has been the creative report project where I intended to interview a whole series of people regarding creativity, its role in their life, society and them approaches to creativity.

You can see the first interview with Adam Jansch below.

If you what to keep unto date with the Creative Report you could follow the blog or the youtube playlist.

If you would like to be interviewed as part of the project please email me or twitter @creative_report.

Well 2010 resulted in another conference publication at ICMC New York HELO: The Laptop Ensemble As An Incubator For Individual Laptop Performance Practices .

The continuation of the Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra and the further development of HELOpg. Also an exciting development was the establishment of ialo.

Also livecoding.co.uk was launched this year to help create an easy to use record of livecoding.

The inclusive improv continued with the improv sessions, Week of Speakers, iigigs and was fortunate to be awarded funding from the PRS for Music Foundation. It also organised the 2010 Creative Pact project.

In 2010 I created a Facebook like plugin for dokuwiki which has seen some use and also started using Git code versioning.

Finally I failed to maintain my this weeks portrait project as a weekly activity but did manage 16 entries. More importantly this project has made me realise how much I enjoy photography so I hope to continue this portrait project on.

And of course the PhD continues but is now heading to its conclusion.

One exciting feature of the year was the use of web analytics’s from that I can tell that the various websites had over 5700 visitors in 2010.

So with that I sign off online for 2010 however there is of course a 2011 project The ‘Creative Report’. I hope to interview creative people about their approaches and methodology throughout 2011 so if you would like to be interviewed please let me know.

All the best and a Happy New Year

Scott

Placed the PhD write up under Git version control this weekend to provide history, versioning and redundancy of the write up process.

Went for Git due to the ease of setup; just git init

in the appropriate folder and also due to some intrest in looking at flashbake.

Will also give me an opportunity to play with Git on OS X.

Also looking forward to the first inclusive improv session in the Cellar Bar at the Lawrence Batley.

Presentation at the Leeds RMA

Holiday time is upon me and for once Im going to try and have a real holiday; ok so I going to take my laptop with me but only so I can Facebook my holiday pics.

My portrait project continues though I have found it impossible to do one a week just been to busy.

The next set of inclusive improv projects are being planned and I am happy to report that it is far to big for me to look after it all any more. One really cool project is the #creativepact

Finally I have been able to establish the International Association of Laptop Orchestras (IALO) with the aim of providing a centralised reference point about laptop orchestras.

So see you when I get back
