Re-discovered Doug Bowman's  IEEE Computer article "Virtual Reality: How Much Immersion is Enough?" which provides a good overview of VR success stories and potential benefits of immersion.

We have lost a great mind.  Marvin Minsky died yesterday. The New York Times has an article.
Professor Minsky laid the foundation for the field by demonstrating the possibilities of imparting common-sense reasoning to computers.

Did you see the blog post by Stephen Wolfram? http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2016/01/farewell-marvin-minsky-19272016/ Very touching remembrance.

My former student, James Clawson, is on the job market this year. These days he's interested in wearable computers to help with health informatics. A good guy to have on your team!

Story
Tagline
Intelligent interfaces through wearable computing, first person sensing, and pattern discovery
Introduction
I am a Technical Lead/Manager on Glass and a Professor of Computing at Georgia Tech.  Besides Glass, my projects include a glove that teaches the wearer how to play piano melodies without active attention, detecting sign language from brain signals, two way communication experiments with dolphins, and a computer vision based sign language recognizer that helps young deaf children acquire language skills.
Bragging rights
I am a founder of the field of wearable computing and coined the term "augmented reality" in 1990 to describe the interfaces I was building. For over 20 years I have worn a head-up display based computer in my everyday life as an intelligent assistant, the longest such experience known.

Country store with a cafe in back and a few tables. BBQ pork sandwich is really tasty. Burger is basic. Sweet potato fries are local potatoes. Coffee shop. Better than basic lunch stop.

Happiness = Thai green curry + Wente merlot. A wonderful discovery. Large menu of diverse Asian dishes, wine list, and good service. Nice date. Stands out from all the chains nearby. The chef/owner knows how to cook both savory and spicy dishes. I would be happy with this food in San Francisco or Atlanta neighborhoods. Worth the 15 minute dark walk from the hotels. Outside does not look inviting, but inside is nicely decorated and comfortable.

Ahi enchiladas and queso were great! Restaurant deserves better ratings than it is getting here.

Double cheddar style burger and onion rings very good. Shakes are very thick. A lot of food for little $. Clean and new. These folks are trying, and it shows. Cookout has a drive through, but the burgers seem cooked to order. If they can keep this quality of experience going, Cookout will be my preferred fast food place around Georgia Tech.
