It’s been a nice 24 hours of catching up. Last night went out for Mexican food with two friends from highschool. Now that everyone is doing their own thing, it is really nice to be able to get together whenever we get a chance. Stuffed our faces with tacos and burritos (and some delish margaritas!) and then went to see Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides (the 4th one). Oh in 3D as...
Following a theme about interface - here is an artistic way to show data As harsh and far from science art may seem, this is quite pretty
A Multi-Touchscreen Invention, using a not exactly break through technology. This video dates back to 2006. So my question is, if we have all this great technology out there, why don’t we see more of it being used commercially?
Currently watching Wall Street. The new version with the “Even Stevens” kid. For those of you who never watched the Disney Channel as a 90’s kid - Shia LaBeouf. In the first hour, hell the first half hour, I realized just how little I understand about the world of Wall Street, investment banking, and our economy. I am sure it’s natural that the average population...
college coffee shops
Living on a college campus, I get used to the coffee shop atmospheres. You need to get work done, you go to a coffee shop. I tried staying home in my apartment during finals week and that resulted in endless raiding of the fridge and too much hulu. I usually try to avoid places like Starbucks if I go out but will opt for the more local shops. But no matter what, I feel like I can usually find...
So it’s been three days since I’ve been back home. It’s been great so far - home cooked meals, being with the family, and doing nothing. Went shopping and grabbed lunch with my mom today. Went to visit my old highschool as well and saw a few old friends which was nice But for a person that is always on the move, I need a project to keep me busy. Something exciting. I’ve...
Airplanes Like Shooting Stars
Currently sitting in a rather large aircraft on my way to Newark to head back home for the summer. Well I suppose this is a normal sized airplane. I’ve Bren traveling on express flights that feel like toys. Thankfully I’m not really afraid of flying. Sometimes I still get excited to travel on planes even though I’ve been flying since I was a kid. And those were 18 hour flights to...
The End of Studio. Forever
Kind of fitting if you think about it. Friday the 13th was the day of my last studio, probably forever. This was a long semester. Our final review wasn’t pretty. People just didn’t have the same about work typically seen in more final reviews. I’m sure it was really embarrassing for our professor and according to her - this was the lowest amount of production she’s seen in...
Killing One Monster, Unleashing Another:... →
I found this article posted on someone’s facebook and thought 1. interesting and 2. glad that there were other sentiments about the recent news of Osama’s death I don’t agree with everything that this article talks about - there are a lot of generalizations, there are a lot of things he says I don’t think is fair to assume - but I appreciate his attempt to look at the...
