Unreasonable at Sea day 73: we’re gonna die young

At 3:00 AM we were supposed to have a meeting with Bill from Dragon Innovations to talk about manufacturing in China. He had to postpone the meeting so I ended up going back to sleep in the Glazer Lounge for another few hours, although at about 4 AM the staff came and cleaned it up, but it didn’t last for too long. Then at 6 AM, Moshe and I had a meeting via Skype with Tom and Lucille to prototype the Art Commission website, called Aprisi, that we are working on together. It was a good meeting. I skyped with Jack about the possibility of applying to the Science Gallery show, Illusions, and it was super to chat with him.  I went back to sleep for an hour, then woke up to have a meeting on deck 5. Little did I know that the pull up contest was happening now, and I wish I’d have been there to represent team Luna-Sea (ie the staff and faculty team).

Today was the Olympics. That means that lots of people, all day were participating in shipwide competitive events, including “frozen tee shirt contest”. It was an extremely nice day to remain in the classroom 1 and work quietly on a lot of work. At the end of the day, Cesar was displaying the movie WE ARE MANY in the Union for the students. After, I went to the toocan lounge and danced to K3$HA or whatever. It was good.


Dedication for Jessie:

Here’s some of what I worked on besides Protei and a bit of grant writing and preparing work etc..

Basically just getting opencv working with Cinder and messing around with some of the cinder examples, OSC, etc.


In order to install OpenCV for Cinder, navigate to your /blocks directory:

gabriellas-MacBook-Air:~ gabriellalevine$ cd /Users/gabriellalevine/Documents/cinder_master/Cinder/blocks

Then do :

gabriellas-MacBook-Air:blocks gabriellalevine$ git clone git:// opencv

This took me 3 tries and 24 hours because of the slow internet, but finally I got it installed and can begin to work with Cinder OpenCV. I wonder if I will want to continue to use Kyle’s OpenFrameworks OFxCV rather than cinder’s opencv, but I’ll mess around with them both and figure out which platform will support what I am trying to do.

I also found out who is on our network, because they are deciding that students have been hijacking our internet (and we’re about the change the password).

To do this, I : 1. installed homebrew

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

2 installed nmap; 

gabriellas-MacBook-Air:blocks gabriellalevine$ brew install nmap

3. sudo nmap -sn
