14:03 run4flat there we go
14:03 osfameron did we leave?
14:04 run4flat there was networks split of some sort
14:04 run4flat liddle_piddle_bot was somewhere else, so when liddle came back, he said hi
14:04 run4flat I've been waiting to give a shout out to lungching for the last five minutes
14:04 run4flat lungching: nice find
14:08 run4flat The explorable examples bit (http://worrydream.com/ExplorableExplanations/) is a very good articulation of where I'd like to see PDL + Prima go
14:16 lungching run4flat: thanks!
14:16 lungching awwaiid put me on to that guy for his demo of a video game ide
14:17 lungching let's see if I can find it ...
14:18 lungching here's the full video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUv66718DII
14:18 * run4flat looks
14:19 run4flat whoa, 55 minutes
14:20 lungching yeah, I can also link to a 5 minute video of the best part if you want
14:21 lungching though that's kind of like just watching the end of the movie, I think ;)
14:21 run4flat well, I'll put it in the background and pay attention when it sounds good. :-)
14:26 lungching ha
14:26 run4flat yeah, actually the whole thing is pretty cool
14:27 lungching :)
14:27 run4flat a bit too focused on graphic design for my interests
14:27 run4flat but still really good ideas
14:30 lungching yeah
14:30 lungching but I like the movement to incorporate more visual stuff when doing papers or making software tools
14:31 run4flat yes, that is much more along the lines of what I want
14:31 lungching the visual aspect of learning and understanding seems to be ignored more than it should be
14:35 run4flat I think that interactivity is a major missing piece in scientific communication in general
14:38 run4flat Now I'm watching his binary search thing... looks interesting
14:38 run4flat sorry, I'm not trying to live-tweat my watching a movie, I'll stop. :-)
14:49 lungching haha, don't worry about it
14:49 lungching to be honest, I haven't watched the video in a while and I only really remember the mario game programming part
14:49 run4flat that part was pretty cool. :-)
14:51 lungching yeah, the reason awwaiid linked that to me was as a demostration as showmanship
14:52 lungching don't be satisfied with showing something awesome awesome (the recording and replaying the game with different parameters)
14:53 lungching but follow up with super awesome (showing the mario trail that changes as params change) :)
14:53 run4flat yeah, that was pretty cool.
14:53 run4flat "That's not good enough."
14:54 run4flat But, I wonder how much code he had to write to help him explore a small collection of ideas
14:57 lungching hmmm, yeah, it was probably a lot of effort
14:57 lungching though I get the impression he's one of those genius college kids
14:58 run4flat But that's an important constraint: how could we help normal people explore ideas?
14:58 run4flat non-geniuses
15:00 lungching exactly
15:01 lungching and I believe the polically correct term for non-genius is 'muggle' ;)
15:01 run4flat haha
15:01 lungching oh, and did you see: http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blobdiff/fd7895cf8ded27bc2c1cddf7c72c17d6bdc95df0..24f4b7da:/pod/perlfunc.pod
15:02 run4flat wow! That's great!
15:03 lungching yeah, perl just being perl and help'n out space stuff
15:23 run4flat awesome video, thanks
15:24 lungching no problem :)
