Away for a conference

Usually I manage to post to this blog once or twice a week, but last weekend I went away for a small conference, so I didn't get a chance to post. The conference was a discussion of the impacts of digital technology on the design professions.
The most interesting thing was an informal presentation by a professor from the University of Oregon about a new way of recording drawings into a computer. Digital Sketching Project The special pen and pad of paper record each stroke as they are drawn. Then the drawing process can be replayed as an animation. I'm excited about the possiblity of recording the sequence and timing of the drawing process both for teaching drawing and for research on cognitive mapping.
