Weavefy Interactive Book Creator (Not Real)

Monday, October 31st, 2011

For the first time since I started grad school, my class takes place outside of Allen (the “Paul Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering”). It takes place in Paccar Hall, home to the Foster School of Business, and the restaurant from hell, Orin’s Place.

Since the class is a business class, not a computer science class, there is no code to be written. There is, however, a business plan for a hypothetical project.

This is the pitch.

After a few viewings, it has become apparent that the slides are changing a little too fast. Because the video cannot go over 2 minutes, I will have to cut stuff before the deadline on Thursday.

Edit: Stuff has been cut. Should be less frantic now.

Edit 2: The scriptwriter wanted to add some of the cut material back in. In order to accomplish this, we show the text superimposed over the interactive book sample clips. The first Three Little Pigs video was replaced as well.

Script: Dharma Shukla
Illustrations: Adrian Ferrer (me)

Interactive Books:
The Three Little Pigs by Nosy Crow
The Three Little Pigs by Game Collage
Al Gore’s Our Choice by Push Pop Press
Raven’s Biology by Inkling

Tsunderella Honeymoon by Gust Sound Team (Mana Khemia 2)

Mighty Morphin’ Skin Shifter

The only Power Rangers series I actually watched was Power Rangers Wild Force, back in 2002.

It is, however, the most relevant series for this card.

Clash of the titans

So how about those people who thought Primeval Titan would become irrelevant after Valakut and the Eldrazi rotated out.

Package from Walfas

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

When KirbyM of Walfas, center of western Toho fandom, learned that I was going to send him a copy of Fairy Ring, he sent me this.

Now that is some rainbow-colored awesome right there. I took one of the folders to my professor’s office hours today (holding documents for class, of course). I’ve ordered a bunch of wholesale copies of Fairy Ring (each with the promo poster included), one set of which is going straight to Kirby in New York, but obviously the comic hasn’t been printed as of this time.

The rest of you don’t get anything, but you can look at this picture.

Math Girls (English Version)

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

A little over two years ago, I made a reference to Hiroshi Yuki’s novel series Math Girls, which combines advanced math with high school romance.

Well, guess what.

My reaction is as you would expect:

This should bring happiness to all those who want a little glasses moe with their number theory.

CCY would be proud.
