In The Mirror (cover)

This is one of my favourite piano pieces by Yanni.

I’m not a pianist. I’ve never taken piano lessons. I’m like grade -1 or something. This took me over a dozen tries…

Software is everywhere

Coming soon to toasters and refrigerators. YouTube hates me, or WMV files, because the rendered video has visual static…

And celebrate whatever holiday is meaningful to you. Happy holidays!

Singapore Mini Maker Faire Part 1

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 by pointing it up and down for light-on and light-off. Then I asked if it could be programmed to understand sideways directions…

Basically, if you block the emitting device (ultrasonic waves) within a certain distance, the light switches on. That’s why pointing to the ceiling switches it off, because the distance between the device and the ceiling exceeds the programmed distance limit.

Stereotypes and Programming

Generally, stereotypes are bad. They’re useful only as a tool to fill in gaps, but most people use it the wrong way, which is they rely *only* on their version of the stereotype.

Also, all software frameworks are stereotypes. Also, the sun was being dramatic.
