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
