Shortlog - a log of everyday things



Yesterday I participated in a user study pertaining to multitouch gesture frameworks. Regexes for multitouch events are pretty cool. Automatically generating them is even better. The hard part in describing touch gestures seems to be stating clearly which details you don't care about. I should toy around with multitouch frameworks at some point.

Today Facebook ran a mini puzzlehunt (7 puzzles) at Berkeley. Ankur, Annelise, Josiah, and I completed it in 45 minutes flat (and backsolved two of the puzzles). After we won (and each received $100 Visa gift cards (!)), we went back and forward-solved the puzzles, then relocated to our usual meeting location in the Swarm Lab and planned our own puzzle hunt a little more.

Then I went back to BiD and sat around talking to Andy and Manas with a microphone to produce test data for David Sun's project.

On the way back home, I stopped by Soda Hall and caught the tail end of the CS Movie Night - they were watching Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Wrath of Khan was IMHO the best of the Star Trek movies, and the one most like the original show.
