2009.02.16 Meeting Notes


Davis Public Library

Project Reports

  • Installfests — No IF has taken pace yet. We're still looking for a suitable venue, possibly the Davis Public Library or a room via Technocultural Studies (a new major at UCD). We don't use Kemper because getting network access is difficult. We can no longer use Zinfandel because, though the Experimental College was fine with us being there, the custodians keep the building locked.
  • LERT — No news.
  • Library — No change.

Other Business

  • Whole Earth Festival - Nick Schmalenberger and Alex Mandel have been discussing LUGOD attending this year's WEF at UC Davis. Nick has offered to handle registration, and he has acquired a table for LUGOD. WEF takes place on Mother's Day weekend in May, and the deadline to sign up to participate is mid-March. We'll need volunteers to burn CDs and staff the booth.
  • News — The next LUGOD meeting will be March 16th, and will be on Cmake.
  • Financial Report — $??.?? in voluntary dues were collected.


  • Jason Howard, lead developer and co-founder, and Ramona Howard, founder of Spectsoft, talked about their Rave product, and how it's used in the film and television industries. Jason also discussed CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture), a parallel computing architecture developed by NVIDIA, and how they're utilizing it to process video frames, real-time.
