    If anyone is like me and just get goose bumps from seeing talented people be really talented, this is worth looking closely at:
    http://www.behance.net/gallery/Black-Tower-Master-Thesis/3164206

    It appears to be excerpts from an architecture master thesis, it is all so excellent I nearly passed out the first time I saw it.
    That is super cool. And a shitload of work just for a masters.

    what?

    it's a masters

    you have years to do it.

    A masters is one year over here, but I was really referring to the overall quality of what he's put together.

    It's two years here. And yeah, but like, he's an architect. This is what he does!

    (It is really interesting though. If I felt like I had the artistic chops to do it I'd go for architect.)

    I tried that in college. It's not really about art.

    Or better said, it's art through math, so I hated it.

    I wouldn't have any problem with that, considering I'm going for engineering.

    The application process is a little daunting. Artistically speaking. I'm just like, I don't know! I can't do anything with this! I'm not an artist!

    Haha, I did perfectly well in all the artistic stuff in the application process. I did so shitty on anything that involved math or physics though. No idea how I managed to get in.

    there are engineers that know how to make buildings. Architects don't.

    Uh, okay. I think. Maybe.

    yeah, much like george costanza, being an architect is a dream of mine

    but I kinda make music through math!

    i got to play one of these the other day -- it's all voltage based!

    Art through math. That sounds so wonderful.

    This is just the result of some equations.

    Pokémon is nice. I wish I hadn't spent money on White though, because I grew out of this shit.

    Fuck being an adult.

    The masters thesis is often just a semester. The rest of the two years are just courses.

    elm is that the paper that was treating the cytoskeletal microtubules as effectively having 6-bit storage units using CaMKII?

    the thing i wonder about that is how well things like the connections of each neuron to the next are preserved because it would be useless having an input output map but no idea which neurons were in that map

    That's the one.

    We really need better tools for this sort of thing, though I have had the frightening realization that the thing about the brain and our cells in general is that there's precisely no need for anything to actually work in any sort of remotely logical fashion. Evolution is, after all, basically the ultimate writer of spagetti code.

    That's some 200 billion stars to visit.

    On the one hand, evolution apparently writes classes sometimes (like with homeobox genes).

    On the other hand, evolution never puts comments in its code.

    Is this a trading sim, a freespace-like or what?

    It's not really clear what it is.

    Elite-like MMO is what he's shooting for.

    Of course, gameplay isn't really nailed down yet since he's busy writing the graphics engine and the galaxy, star system and planetary generation engine.

    And it is not out. Evil tongues will say that it's vapourware. But they lack faith!

    Whatever it ends up being

    it will let me explore 200 billion star systems and land - seamlessly - on their planets.

    ...they fear such topics "could evoke unpleasant emotions in the students."

    Dinosaurs, for example, call to mind evolution, which might upset fundamentalists; birthdays are not celebrated by Jehovah's Witnesses; and Halloween suggests paganism.

    thats the biggest trick dna plays on people

    theyre all like "oh itll make sense therell be a few organising principles"

    and then they discover that if something could possibly have an effect then, somewhere, some organism will be making use of that effect

    completely random types of data compression? LETS DO IT
