May 19th, 2010

CSMS has designed tshirts that will be yellow with hunter green print OCCS  2009 - 2010will be centered on the front on the back it will read: You know you're a CS major if... You think flip-flops belong in DLSim not on feet. You've written 15 programs to calculate the Fibonacci numbers. You consider recursion an alternative lifestyle. You know more languages than an UN employee. You sometimes write "the downstairs lab" as a permanent address. Divide and conquer doesn't sound like a military strategy. O(n^3) and O(135n^3 + 3000n+  1828537)  look  identical *int {} (*float) is clearly a pointer to a function taking a float pointer and returning a pointer to an array of intergers. You close your eyes and see public static void man ( String args { } ) Scheme is just another word for a lot of parens The cost will be $8.00 To order email Jackie.Fortino@oberlin.edu with your size by Friday 5/21/2010. The shirts should be in by May 28 , if you are gone by then they can be picked up in the Fall.

The Making of Semi-Conducted * Hunter McCurry Tues May 11

May 10th, 2010

Hunter McCurry will be giving a lecture on the making of Semi-Conducted, my quartet and video piece. A very short video excerpt of the piece is posted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCT4wpvXmmc The lecture will be *Tuesday May 11* at 5:15 in TIMARA Studio 2. I will be pairing up with fellow TIMARA major Gabe Stewart who will be talking about his project visualizing and sonifying GPI (General Progress Indicator) data for Northeast Ohio. Each of our lectures will be under 30 minutes. (This) Tuesday, May 11th 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm TIMARA Studio 2 Beyond simply a description of the piece, the lecture should also serve as an introduction to a new open-source piece of software called Field, a coding environment for making digital art. This software is a hybrid of several paradigms: coding (it is written in Python), visual programming (like Max/MSP), and drawing (like Photoshop, Flash). Even if you can't make it to the lecture, I strongly encourage you to check it out! It has great potential: http://openendedgroup.com/field
