I have been wrestling with the Google Chart API for days, trying to get it to show me a line chart with two freaking lines, but clearly there’s something I’m missing. In the meantime, though, a reasonable portion of Booknik is working, so you can go poke at that.

This week’s assignment for Crafting with Data was to “Get to know the normal distribution intimately by building your own quincunx or Galton box. You may use either physical materials or create an imaginative software simulation.” Continue reading Crafting a Quincunx

I had wanted to make an AfterEffects animation for my CommLab final project, but then I didn’t get around to playing with the program until the eleventh hour. The result is definitely not what I had in mind. (What I wanted to do was more like de Vicq de Cumptich’s Bembo’s Zoo animations.)

We gave our presentation today, the thing mostly worked, and it wasn’t too embarrassing. And, unlike some people in the class, my group actually got two or three hours of precious, golden sleep the night—well, morning—before.
