Geoff informed me that my map is in color for some reason, (early adopter?) so I decided to take advantage of it and explain it a bit.
I told him that it places people who have the most links with each other, together.
For example, all of my friends from my chatrooms are in magenta up at the top. IanJ is in the center of the magenta crowd because he’s like, the centerpiece of the chatroom, so he has direct ties to everyone else in the room. Hooray for RPG World.
The people to the upper-right of me, in cyan, are all from Terra Linda, or that crowd, while the cyan people on the left and upper-left of me are from Drake.
Near the bottom is the total bemani crowd. James and Sophie are close to me because we share a lot of links, but they’re still below me, closer to the bemani crowd.
In the upper right are three people I know from UCSC (who are in the same group of friends), and in the upper left are 2 more (Ron and Saku), but they’re there because they’re linked to some people at home.
This is neeeeet.
I’m planning on blogging a lot more this summer. But to keep people interested and to keep from wearing myself out, I’m going to try to blog about smaller topics each day. I don’t know. Sort of like a comic with a different topic each day, only it’s text. It should be fun!
Topic for today: I’m going to New York next week. Sunday to Sunday. I’ll be visiting the relatives on my mom’s side of the family… the main event is really seeing one of my cousins, Matthew, who’s recovering from Leukemia. He got it earlier this year, so I’m sure he’s still quite weak. It’ll be interesting.
Matthew is a twin – his brother Adam always seemed to be a little better-developed, put bluntly. Matt has some eye problems as well, like one of his eyes is lazy and he wears glasses. But they’re both great guys. It’ll be fun to have a short reunion of sorts.
Next blog: My job situation!
ADDENDUM: I’ll also be trying to add some interesting links. This one – http://slate.msn.com/id/2102299 – is a must-read about Garfield, the comic that ruined my childhood.
That took a lot of programming to do, and I think the design is uber-sleek. I’m so proud of myself. And I think my future employers will be, too!
obtw im bak from uc.
