Contrary to evidence otherwise, I'm not dead, just got busy with life outside blog/qs land for the past 8 months. Am now working on returning to former productivity levels, starting with a new release of emokit and openvibe bindings ASAP, then maybe taking another look at libfitbit and the fitbit ultra.
Before that's all done though, I'll be speaking at the SF Data Mining Meetup March 6th at the Trulia offices. It's me and one of the people from Basis. I think it may already be sold out, but watch the page to see if more spots become open.
