So the last time, I told you I came up with my own video format so I could load videos into my game engine. Today, I’m going to tell you what it is. The concept isn’t revolutionary. Image compression is the art of expressing an image in as small a form as possible. There are […]
In which I answer a question about starting a business while you’re studying. Here’s the blog post in question.

Part 2 of my visit to the mini Maker Faire held in Singapore, August 4. We have robots that walk and do self-defence and play soccer. And musical instruments made out of unusual materials. And a fire tornado. Watch part 1.
A few days ago, I went to a BlackBerry developer meetup session hosted by my friend. Being primarily a .NET developer, I thought I’d broaden my horizons and learn what the BlackBerry platform was about. It was a little bit of a show-and-tell.

I went to the mini Maker Faire at the Singapore Science Centre. In the video, there’s a device that measures distances using ultrasonic waves, and based on that, turns a light on or off. It took me a while before I finally understood the concept. I thought it was directional, because she explained the device […]

Of all the activities, I still like coding. Because it allows me to solve problems of a nature that’s programmatically solvable. Customer service I’ve worked with customer […]
Is there an age gap? Perhaps. I believe it’s more of a mindset gap. James’ video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqAqCNHCksw And it wasn’t so much Dan Brown (pogobat) who said that line, but Clay Shirky (though I paraphrased). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lmjvRkaY8I
I went to the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts graduation art exhibition. My friend Wendy’s work is displayed. And “yesterday” is 17 July 2012. Also, my camera really suck at capturing audio… NAFA website: http://www.nafa.edu.sg/ Music is “This Wasn’t Supposed To Be The Future” Album “Chargrilled Stegosaurus Discotheque” By Will Dixon http://www.youtube.com/WillsOdyssey http://willdixon.bandcamp.com/
The Higgs Boson particle was discovered (or a Higgs-like particle). Also (scientific) models were discussed. Also, 3 joggers, 1 couple, 1 schoolboy and a golf cart. The park’s busy today…
