This year’s European Juggling Convention was probably the geekiest ever, featuring a geek point managed by Daniel Shultz. The predominant topic was siteswaps [FAQ]: creating, representing, discussing, and juggling them. This seems natural for a juggling convention. But the point accommodated other types of geekery as well, such as cubes, board games, and the workshop Finnish for beginners. To save me some writing, see an interview with Daniel about the geek point (Nathan’s live streaming was geeky, too) and his video wrap-up.
Grocery Store DoS
When a European Juggling Convention hits a neighbourhood grocery store, the results are indistinguishable from those of a denial of service attack. The good news is that this foto represents a temporary state. Even in a remote place like Joensuu, Finland, the supply chain could cope and the shelf was quickly refilled after the sudden increase in demand.
