Links and Resources - September 2013

September 2013 has been a very busy month from personal to PhD work and more! Moving house and a protracted close of sale.  An amazing MOCAP workshop in Helsinki, Finland and a paper presentation in Tampere, Finland.  The 3rd DAH Institute in Derry, or should I say stroke city as locals there sometimes call Derry. A poetry book launch and reading by Catherine Culleni in the Trinity Long Room Hub, a screening programme of Synthesis 2 by Fractal music at the IFI, a one day visualisation workshop with Sarah Kenderdine in the Trinity Long Room Hub, negotitations re a lecture on the work of the CVM to be held in the ATRL, back teaching on MMT. A book to review by Nuno Correla (really looking forward to that). Birthdays and meet ups.. and lots of not returned emails, which I must do in October..it has been intense.  

In the middle of this, a kind of disinterested browsing of resources and sites I have come across and so to try to capture some of these browsing links so I can come back to them when I am less busy (but will I?) I am throwing them into this post to demarc my discovery of them.
