I met with my adviser today for my research project, and got an assignment to get a basic motion model working by next week. For now, we need the computer to understand the difference between “normal” and “articulated” motion, where articulated means more perfect. The motion model will just see X motion, Y motion, or Z motion. It will also distinguish “articulated” versions of these motions, where the motion must be nearly (perhaps even inhumanly) perfect. This will be our line between “amateur” and “mastered” motion in SMALLab. This will hopefully allow us to develop models to detect learning through the motion of the SMALLab students.

There was an interesting discussion on squeak-dev about new ideas for the squeak.org website. Karl had an excelent description of the intended difference between squeak.org and the Swiki. Also, I may soon have editing priviledges on squeak.org. That will be useful; the Documentation page is very disorganized.

I am starting this blog primarily as a geek journal. I found last semester that I had a hard time remembering what I had done, and this blog is my solution to that problem. Maybe it will also make it easier for me to have a better home page than my old lame one.
