It would be fun to viz my Google+ followers. I suspect the vast majority of them are spammy based on cursory glances at the notifications I get once in awhile. I wonder if there are patterns that could be viz'ed from their profile images, messages, and perhaps connections with other users.

... Heck, I should just make the viz instead of wondering. New item for summer side project list!

INFO 247 (Info Viz) has changed my thinking, haha. By summer's end, I'd like to be a d3 ninja. :) One step (or side project) at a time...

I'm not exactly sure what InfoViz is, but if you get around to actually doing it, I'd definitely like to see what results and conclusions you end up with

Got stuck in a rut coding my program today. Best solution? Fresh cup of milk tea and a little walk outside. :) And then start afresh!

I have a feeling the majority of my paltry student budget this year will be earmarked for milk tea / spicy popcorn chicken "brain refreshments." Necessities, I say.

I feel like app development walks a fine line these days. Too many apps are being built with the supposed purpose of "making life easier/smarter/more convenient," but in actuality, they are slowly trying to monetize away our lives. More developers are trying to be the next overnight billionaire with over-valued, inflated stock prices that the public is prodded into buying thanks to the media that puts this kind of thinking on a pedestal.

I want to make money so I can live comfortably and won't have to worry about the future, but I can't justify to myself building a product solely in hopes of it getting acquired or blowing up to make millions. It's too easy to get sucked into the concept of money when you are surrounded by a startup/developer/hacker community. I hope I can stay grounded when I move back to the Bay...
Restaurateurs are uncomfortable with a wave of mobile apps that secure and resell coveted tables at popular establishments, sometimes covertly.

Stopped by Royce Hall last night to film the "Let There Be" projection mapping show from UCLA's Centennial Campaign. It's pretty sweet! Work was done by Mirada Studios (www.mirada.com) in Marina del Rey.

Watch in HD and increase the player size to larger. :)

Way to go, I-School Class of 2014!!! 

Going to spend my weekend perusing through their links and reports. :) Really exciting to think that I'll be in a team, posting our hard work on this page in just two years.

An old mathematical proposition, Sperner’s lemma, can be used to resolve thorny modern predicaments fairly.

Hm... Tooltips don't close on iPads if you touch out of the tooltip. They only seem to close when you tap the button again, but that's not intuitive.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10977400/closing-jquery-tools-tooltip-on-iphone-ipad-with-touchstart

May need to take up the marked answer and just add a close button/text link for mobile/tablet only.

Whoaaaaa... This is going to have to take some mulling over.

Initial thoughts, I guess:
- Interesting how the search bar has such a prominent place. I do search through my email, but search phrases should be shorter, no?  
- I like the pin off/on toggle next to the search bar. I guess this will replace the starring system - may be an issue for people who use the Labs' add-on of custom stars/icons. (+Victor Yee)
- Built-in tasks are really cool. Wonder how the "feedback" portion works - how does Gmail determine when someone is asking for feedback? Will there only be two options - good and bad?
- The Promotions and Social tabs are now threads instead of tabs. Wondering how this will display... Accordions? Or maybe just buttons to separate sections.
- Labels are now similar to the Promotions and Social tabs. At first I was thinking this would be a nice way to roll up groups of emails, but now I'm thinking... What if you have an important email within a Label? You'd have to open the Label and filter through it. That adds a second step and also time.
- I don't see how the current Important/Very Important flagging system is translated in the redesign. I hope they aren't getting rid of it! It's a great way to visually filter your inbox.
- Doesn't seem like there is any more customization for chat list/calendar/quick links/docs list widgets.
Gmail may soon look nothing like the Gmail we all know so well. Google has invited a select group of users to test a completely new interface for the webmail client, according to Geek.com, which...

...Seriously?
A new app, cutely christened MonkeyParking, allows drivers to auction off their prime public parking spots in San Francisco to the highest bidder. Kudos to those of you who want to park your Tesla right in front of Puerto Alegre. Yet again, the world is yours.
