Algebraic geometry is the study, using algebraic tools, of geometric objects defined as the solution sets to systems of polynomial equations in several variables. This course is the second in a two-quarter introductory sequence that develops the basic theory of this classical mathematical field. Whereas the fall-quarter course focused more on the subject’s algebraic underpinnings, this quarter will concentrate on geometric interpretations and applications. Topics to be discussed include Bézout’s Theorem, rational varieties, cubic curves and surfaces (including the remarkable 27-line theorem), and the connection between varieties and manifolds. The theoretical discussion will be supported by a large number of examples and exercises. The course should appeal to those with an interest in gaining a deeper understanding of the mathematical interplay among algebra, geometry, and topology.
I’m definitely attending the Winter Quarter!
Token Generation Events (TGE’s) have proliferated as an alternative means of funding a Start Up. There are some compelling opportunities for the entrepreneur over conventional VC and Angel options. This is the (unfolding) story of how one navigates a fast changing landscape where the SEC looms, Token Economics is religion, Skepticism is growing, Exchanges can help or hurt you and potentially tens of thousands of people in dozens of foreign countries are your investors. I’m all in and I’ll tell you why…..

Topic: Building a Blockchain based Business and funding it via a TGE
I met Michael Culhane at today’s coffee and he’s quite interesting. I’ve been meaning to delve into some of the blockchain technology a bit despite some of the dreadful things I’ve been hearing about the underlying viability of using it for some of the off label use. I hope to see everyone there next Friday.
IndieWebCamp Austin 2017 is a gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, from graphic artists, to designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, actively work on creating for their own personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
I’d like to attend in person, but it’ll have to be remote attendance this time around with the holidays pressing in.
November 4-5, 2017 at SolarMax Technologies, Riverside, California
We are excited to announce Riverside’s inaugural WordCamp, from 8am – 5pm on both days.
This is your chance to talk, share and learn from other Southern California bloggers, designers, developers, and business owners. Our sponsors will be there to provide insight on their products, giving you the leading edge, as well.
I’m attending the inaugural WordCamp Riverside. @wordcamprs #WCRS
There are still just a few tickets left!

Howdy everyone! Welcome to our July general WordPress user group! We discuss all the things WordPress here. If any of you would like to do a presentation post your idea in the comments.
Bring your curiosity, your questions, your swell attitude and lots of potatoes. J/k, just bring your smiling faces.
Interested in using WordPress to create an online presence? Got questions? Come join us tonight in learning together.

Hi all and happy July! We are planning a WordPress Pasadena Developer Meetup for July 18, 2017, 7pm @ Cross Campus in Old Towne Pasadena.
We also decided to change the title of this sub-group to WordPress Pasadena Developer Meetup in order to focus more on developer-oriented topics. We're still experimenting with the exact format and would love to hear your feedback in this next meeting!
This meetup is for a discussion of topics pertaining to WordPress development.
The best thing you could do on a Tuesday evening, right?
RSVPed Interested in Attending https://www.rjionline.org/events/dodging-the-memory-hole-2017
Please join us at Dodging the Memory Hole 2017: Saving Online News on Nov. 15-16 at the Internet Archive headquarters in San Francisco. Speakers, panelists and attendees will explore solutions to the most urgent threat to cultural memory today — the loss of online news content. The forum will focus on progress made in and successful models of long-term preservation of born-digital news content. Journalistic content published on websites and through social media channels is ephemeral and easily lost in a tsunami of digital content. Join professional journalists, librarians, archivists, technologists and entrepreneurs in addressing the urgent need to save the first rough draft of history in digital form.
The two-day forum — funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute and an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant awarded to the Journalism Digital News Archive, UCLA Library and the Educopia Institute — will feature thought leaders, stakeholders and digital preservation practitioners who are passionate about preserving born-digital news. Sessions will include speakers, multi-member panels, lightning round speakers and poster presenters examining existing initiatives and novel practices for protecting and preserving online journalism.
I attended this conference at UCLA in Fall 2016; it was fantastic! I highly recommend it to journalists, coders, Indieweb enthusiasts, publishers, and others interested in the related topics covered.
If there’s one thing that’s abundantly true recently, it is that journalism can get all the help it can. Won’t you join me in helping to effect some change?
