Strange Radiation

Where does the time go? You blink and suddenly there’s a whole new year going on and the index page on your blog has gone horrifyingly blank and your friends are worried you’re dead or something. Not much to report, really: the usual back-and-forth of too much freelance work and not enough; socializing with swimmers; the occasional date. I did the One Hour Swim yesterday — wasn’t feeling prepared enough to take it on all by my lonesome so I did it as a relay with a couple of teammates. Logged 4,600 yards in 60 minutes, drank the Gatorade, got the T-shirt. All was well. I’ve also recently written an initial draft of a story, which suffers from the usual passive-protagonist problems (clearly, my subconscious Has Issues) but is nonetheless promising. I have another story that is nearly in readable draft form, and am preparing to finally do a v2.0 of the Stevie Nicks Death Androids story. So: alive, and not dead.

And now: something geeky and cool. On YouTube, a video of a guy at Carnegie Mellon University who has adapted a Nintendo Wii system’s hardware to create flat-panel VR technology that shifts perspective in reaction to head and body motions by a single viewer, creating realistic simulated 3-D. Extremely neato. (via Defective Yeti.)
