A long walk home

www.alongwalkhome.us. As far as the facts, I'll let the website speak for itself. A man decided to walk a long way and document the trip. His wife is a friend of mine through Toontown, which is how I found out about this. I am really intrigued by his journey and the website. Although it took a long time to get caught up, reading his journal was a lot of fun. It's one of those situations where I find me putting myself in his shoes. Could I go though that? Sadly I don't think I could. Maybe I could handle the walking. I'd like to believe that anyway. There are so many things I couldn't handle. I'm not that good at talking to strangers, asking for free stuff, and all the logistics. I'd never be able to get up every morning knowing what lay in store for me and sucessfully resist the urge to sleep it. The first rainy or especially cold night in a tent would probably do me in, as my friends who went camping with me know. I'm just not that adaptable to conditions or culture. Maybe that's why I'm not good at travelling. It impacted me enough that I felt I had to write something about it before I forgot, even though barely enough code has been written to even allow me to type this. This is the first real entry into my new website, though I'm sure there will be an official "first post" later on as well as much back dated material before this. Eric, I just want to wish you good luck.

Getting back to classes, for Context Aware Computing we had to take a look at Ken Perlin's webpage. If you don't know, he is a brilliant computer scientist and genius programmer. He is a professor at NYU. His main area is graphics and he has won an acadamy award, a technical oscar. He was one of the people who did the early CG for Tron. Well his webpage is amazing. I spent hours there. I love all the little projects he shows. It is great how almost every thing has an interactive demo. He has some really neat ideas. I think it is great that he has been able to work on so many of them, even if only a little bit, enough at least to document the idea on the webpage. I wonder about all the idea I lose because I have no way to get them when they happen. Furthermore, I think his humor is immensely funny and insightful comments an quotes are well picked. Check it out, I'm totally inspired.
