It’s not all speech recognition, artificial and machine intelligence, cutting edge technology, cerebral topics and turning it off and on again. Sometimes, if not all the time, it is important to have a little fun! (not everyone likes social gatherings mind you, but many do)
Which brings us to the annual CADIA “Little Artificial Christmas” party! There was beer, food, games, music and general merriment. Two old Icelandic folk tales were recited for the group, much like was done in the old days before the invention of the transistor and other distractors.
And just like previous years the “Yankee Swap” gift exchange game was played. Everybody brought a little wrapped gift for the gift pool. The idea of the game is to pick something you have relatively little (or no!) use for yourself (maybe you can find something in your storage room). Otherwise, you can buy something small.
