Thesis Progress Roundup, week 8 / by Ernie Gerardo

So we'll get into the linkstorm in a second, but first, let me discuss the progress I've made this week.

Once upon a time, my homegirl Diana told me this...


If you're having trouble reading that, it says that form follows function.  Well now that I've figured out function nine times over, I'm turning my attention to form, namely, materials and execution.  To that end, I'm ordering the LEDs for visual feedback, as per the suggestion of literally everyone who has tested this.  Since I don't have them on hand, I had to modify the guts of my project...

So that when in presentation mode, I can give feedback.  I ultimately don't want a screen to be the provider of feedback, but until such time that I can affix some pulsing LEDs to the installation, this does the job just fine.

In terms of writing and research, as always, look here for my latest drafts of body and intro.

I'm working on my mock thesis defense slides, but you can click here to view them.

In other news, I met with my advisor on Friday.  If you haven't already, pop over here to check it out.

Finally, I met with Donovan today (yesterday?) to discuss our progress.  The meeting was documented on this posting.

I won't be in class next week, so you'll just have to take a look at my writing from sunny Miami.  Try not to miss me too much, okay?
