CSA-EUR board get together, jobfair …

Yeah, on friday 7th of November I finally met up with my fellow CSA-EUR board members after a long time, well since last year July if I remember correctly. πŸ˜› Anyway, we had a nice sea food platter and some lamb at Hotel New York in Rotterdam and had a nice time catching up on what everyone’s been up in the past year. Jason started working for the goverment (Ministerie van Economische Zaken) and Yen Pan is still enjoying working at IBM, she’s currently stationed in London till the end of the year. If I have time I will drop by YP. πŸ˜€ Nathaly stopped working at AEGON and is currently like me also on the hunt … for a job. πŸ˜› Yee Tee couldn’t join sadly enough, next time you have to be there!!! He’s also enjoying his job at IBM. After dinner we went to a bar/club to chillax (for the people that are wondering, chillax = chilling + relaxing) before heading back home.

That was two weeks ago and since then I’ve sent a few letters to a few companies, not gonna say which ones. πŸ˜› Last week friday and saturday I went to the Nationale Carrierebeurs and did some workshops and spoke with a few people of different companies. One of which I will apply for. πŸ™‚ The jobfair was ok, it was pretty crowded on both days. Specially after 12:00, people did show up that early, and how did I know that it got more crowded after 12. Because I was there around 10:30am on both days and stayed pretty long each day because I wanted to check out the workshops. Which were entertaining but I didn’t hear anything new.

Yesterday I was reading up on one of my favorite tech communities Tweakers.net (sorry, it’s a Dutch tech site) and saw this cool article about a 3D OS that everyone could admire in the movie Minority Report. Being the gadget geek that I am I kind of can’t wait for this kind of technology to become available for us normal consumers and the possibilities it can create in terms of interactivity and UI (User Interface). Check out the video by clicking on the link and be amazed as I was.

Minority Report made reality? Here is g-speak!!!

Well on another note, my recovery of my knee is coming along very nicely and today at physical therapy I had a small run on a machine at the end of the session. Got some exercises which I am definately gonna be doing and I can’t wait to see how much I’ve improved wednesday. πŸ™‚ I finally have the feeling that I can start doing everything again, I could do all the daily things like walk, drive, walk stairs etc but running and sporting were out of the question. They still are but I am slowly getting to the point that I might be able to start sporting again within a few weeks.
