Now that I’m settled here in (cold!) Madison, NJ and actually doing some work, I hope to be able to write about some of the things I have been thinking about recently. Work is exciting: a lot of very interesting data and a lot of incredibly smart people. I have a feeling that the collective IQ dropped by a few points the moment I walked in the building.
VisWeek starts next week! Last year I got the surprise of realizing people were actually reading what I was writing. I even got a “hey, you’re the blog guy” (Hi, Raghu :)). So, expect liveblogging. Plenty of exciting changes for this year’s conference, but I particularly like the parallel Vis+InfoVis sessions. There will certainly be growing pains, but I stand by my belief that, in the long run, this is the right move for the community as a whole. Also, VisWeek is now on twitter, the updates of which will most likely be posted by yours truly – buyer beware 🙂
In the next few posts, I want to talk about verification in scientific visualization (and in particular about Tiago‘s upcoming paper on Vis which I was a part of), and fun and games with inner product spaces.
