So this is my new hobby… paragaliding… started in December and trying to fly every weekend. I will be placing the content in these following places: Photos: https://goo.gl/photos/iyvYPfaYcHSVGzfn6 Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdlAMgiuN7X3iLgtu1yQv0V9YXgXZcMyr Flight Tracks: http://doarama.com/user/36355 Stay tuned!
Went to a guided visit of Berkley’s Robotic Learning Lab yesterday. What a beautiful campus and great work they are doing in the field… fascinating.
Woke up to this: This should’ve been there… in some of the pictures the bike has no fenders… PLEASE keep an eye out for it… already filed a report with the police and am searching Craigslist and eBay for it… so sad… Not the first time… this bike of mine was stolen in NYC: And this attempted bike stealing episode! I was having lunch and saw the guy sneak into the garage, get my bike, mount it, and try to run away. Too bad I didn’t catch him.
1. Adriana’s tricycle is still going strong with no problems, as Kim attested: 2. Tesla launched the new Model 3, priced at US$ 35k, before rebates. Very nice… dream car. 3. Took my bike to the shop and came out with the Specialized Turbo bike to test for 2 days. Very cool guys at Calmar Cycles! The ride is amazing – you feel like superman zooming by even the fastest road bikers. Unfortunately they limit the top speed to 28 mph (45 km/h). 4. Not to mention the constant sightings of Google’s self-driving electric car!
Was missing an analogue area to brainstorm on… finally took the plunge and got one 🙂
Went to a very interesting lecture by Philip Guo from University of Rochester “Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale”. He’s the creator of pythontutor.com – an open site to help you visually understand what your code is doing. Here’s a demo video:
So here are the amazing results of a 10 day film class at the d.School that Matej and Shelley participated in. I was the mere actor in it but was great to be involved in film making again – reminded me of how complex it is… Great job guys! “The Moses of Idaho” Moses of Idaho from David Lee on Vimeo. “AM | PM” AM | PM from Austin H on Vimeo.
I was called upon to act in two group’s films for a d.school class Matej and Shelly are taking. Film making is hard work! 1pm till 10pm! Films will be shown on Sunday at 7pm. Here’s one of the several shots we made and some images of what is coming up : )
On Sunday drove into the city with Omair to visit the Drop-In Art Studio’s Maker Art and Mini Expo featuring Stanford’s LDT student projects. Unfortunately we got there a little late and weren’t able to see much. BUT we went upstairs and saw the NEAT: New Experiments in Art and Technology exhibit. Very ITP-like stuff (interactive/technological art) Here’s a quick video I made:
