I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and prosthetics.

When I'm not playing with robots, I hang out with the indieweb community, drink tea, and scubadive.

Edmonton's summer music never ceases to impress. #yeg #blues #music


When you're cycling with the gang, but also want to chat. #yeg

Reflections on Two Years of #Indieweb

Today marks two years of #indieweb for me. I've been reflecting on my experience joining the community and my plans for the future.


Today we had our first HWC in Edmonton. We had four people in attendance; everyone was either building their own personal sites on the university server, or helping people navigate the basics of building a site.

The plan is to have a weekly to bi-weekly meeting where we provide people with the tools to build their own sites. I'm starting with University pages, as it's something people should just have in general, but I'm going to write up some tutorials to motivate and guide people through the hurdles of getting involved in the indieweb community.


I think I'm going to make a #yeg news aggregation site for #opendataday .


Excited to see what people make for #yeg #opendataday .

I played trains with Danny and Felicia at tabletop and created a glorious green-machine railway empire.


The local elementary school made and delivered christmas cards for the community and it's adorable. #yeg


People lined up for summary execution at the edmonton symphony #yeg #yegarts


I met this adorable tiny dog the other day. Its tongue hangs out. #yeg


I missed Hockey Night in Scotland, so I saw the game live. It's not quite the same, but a decent substitute.



Uh, so I saw this truck today. #yeg


The UofA is looking pretty today. #yeg


The saddest sandwich. #yeg #yegphoto


People keep destroying bus shelters. I don't understand it. #yeg #yegphoto


UofA is really good at thematic landscaping. #yeg #alberta


Going through some of the boxes my parents packed for me during the move I found not one, not two, but three cork screws.

Clearly my parents have great expectations.


Hello, Canada.


Are there any #indieweb people in #yeg ? Are there any local meetups?

Yet another well placed tarp for the Edmonton Folk Fest.


Of Monster and Men hitting the main stage.


In case you needed a reminder, Edmonton is beautiful.


There's a whiff of maple syrup in the air. I'm not sure if it's a weird form of pathetic fallacy or not.


We will win the Edmonton Folk Fest tarp this year. It has been foretold.


I won the 50/50 at the free will showing of Coriolanus! With ticket 2345, no less!


Using the Erhu for the solo in the Magic Flute's aria was unexpectedly fun! #yeg


On of the pianists at the chamber music festival was using a tablet for sheet music. #yeg .
