So I was looking at a book (I highly recommend it) last night and I noticed something. On the UK Amazon site, the recommendations of other books I may like were different than the recommendations I got from the US site. And in fact, I liked the UK recommendations better!

Hi! I'm Dan Torop, one of the new EDAR residents. I'm sitting over by the design people, trying to make a digital/sound project through August 15... The plan is to make a talking computer.

Hello EdLab, I'm a new resident in the EDAR program, I figured I'd say hi and type a post. I'm on the bolt bus, and it seems if there ever was a time to blog....
