Mary Robinette Kowal11,385For my puppetry homework for tonight's Jim Henson Diversity Training program, I have to display an emotion in a one-minute silent demonstration. If you want to watch me working through the list of emotions and trying them out with my puppet, I have the camera set up so you can see me AND the television monitor I'm watching.Watch Mary practice her puppetry homework.

Mary Robinette Kowal11,385I'm editing a short fantasy story and as part of my process, I need to read it aloud. Want to watch me curse and change things? The google hangout will open at 5:00 and I'll start reading about five minutes after that, once folks are settled in.Listen to MRK edit a story.2015-05-30 00:00:0019  
Mary Robinette Kowal11,385As part of my process, I read my novels aloud and will be doing that for the next couple of days for Of Noble Family, the fifth book in the Glamourist Histories. I'm starting with Chapter 4 today. If you are interested in process, this is me editing at a line level. There's a fair bit of cursing involved. You don't have to come for the whole thing. I'll read for a couple of hours, take a break and then set up a new hangout. It'll take a couple of days to get through. If you are in a quiet environment and using headphones, you don't have to mute your mic,  because I like to hear laughter and responses (although I reserve the right to mute you if you've guessed wrong about the amount of background noise). Feel free to use the chat window to make comments, particularly if you spot a continuity error. Or do other work, and just treat me like an audiobook with commentary.Of Noble Family read aloud continues2014-10-22 23:30:0011  
Mary Robinette Kowal11,385I'm doing the final pass read aloud on an SF audioplay. If you are interested in process, feel free to sit in and listen. There will be some mild cursing as I try to figure out why I wrote stupid things. The whole thing should take about an hour.Read aloud - SF script2014-07-12 22:00:0016

Android camera question: Can you turn off the mirroring on the front facing camera?

Does anyone know how to turn off the mirroring on the front facing camera in Android? Let me explain why, before you jump to the comments to try to tell me that it’s a feature not a bug. I totally get why, under normal circumstances, having the image…
