CV Dazzle is camouflage from computer vision. It is a form of expressive interference that combines makeup and hair styling with face-detection thwarting designs. It opposes the mainstream push towards the widespread adoption of face recognition.”

Reading and Listening in 2011

This is what I read and heard over the past year. I beat my goal of one book per month. Maybe I should try for 24+ in 2012.

Fiction

It was a very sci-fi year. Pullman’s Dark Materials books were my favourites, although I’d say this was a 4 star year on average.

Non-Fiction

In the non-fiction world, I seem to be on a bit of a “Ruby with Olsen” kick.

Audio Lectures

This was the year I discovered audio lectures. Most of these were heard while running in Assiniboine park.
