Verbs for Devices
Much as I did last year, I’m writing a proposal for research in a particular field, that would be cool if someone (perhaps me) would pursue it; this year, as I’m finishing up an independent study in human-computer interaction– interestingly, with one of the same professors from that course last year, who was cool enough I was inspired not just to take this course, but actually to have him advise me on my thesis as a whole. I haven’t been blogging much as I finish said thesis, and the myriad other things at the end of five years at Hopkins, but I thought that this proposal might interest a few of you. Enjoy.
New GitHub Action Streams Plugin
Continuing my series of Action Streams plugins, I’ve added a new one for GitHub, since after all, if I’m using GitHub for development of these plugins, it’d be in poor taste if it didn’t get its own plugin! :-)
Moving MT Plugins to GitHub
Since GitHub seems to be the “cool new place” to host open source code, and since I have no earthly reason to leave my MT plugins in a private repository, I’ve moved the code for all my Movable Type plugins to GitHub. The Movable Type page here will continue to have current information, as well as download links, for all of the plugins, but you can also obtain them from GitHub if you prefer.
Corrupting the Next Generation
I occasionally get called to do odd jobs in the role of “CS Posterboy,” as, it seems, very few people in my department can speak to prefreshmen and their parents. My college visits didn’t involve my parents– I went alone, which I highly recommend to anyone looking, as it’s a completely different experience to actually visit a campus without your parents waiting in the car.
