I actually do plan on posting more on this blog in the coming weeks, but for the moment I just wanted to post a short update. I'm now at "Cornell":http://cornell.edu in the "Information Sciences":http://www.infosci.cornell.edu PhD program. I finished my master's thesis at the "MIT Media Lab":http://www.media.mit.edu in August just a couple days before I had to start at Cornell. The text of my thesis is now available, entitled "Encouraging the Expression of the Unspeakable: Influence and Agency in a Robotic Creature":http://purl.oclc.org/NET/NKNOUF/MSThesis/Thesis/MSThesis.pdf (warning: it's a 65MB file!). I'll be writing more on different topics soon, as well as making my own theme for the blog and updating some of my projects on "zeitkunst":http://zeitkunst.org. *Update*: I've enabled browsing of the code, source text, models, figures, etc. from my thesis in the "MSThesis subversion repository":https://svn.zeitkunst.org/viewvc/MSThesis/. Look in the "Creature":https://svn.zeitkunst.org/viewvc/MSThesis/trunk/Creature/ subdirectory for the python code used in the simulation and actual robot, "Electronics":https://svn.zeitkunst.org/viewvc/MSThesis/trunk/Electronics/ subdirectory for circuit board schematics and board firmware, "Modeling":https://svn.zeitkunst.org/viewvc/MSThesis/trunk/Modeling/ for blender models that were used in early explorations, and "Thesis":https://svn.zeitkunst.org/viewvc/MSThesis/trunk/Thesis/ for the source latex files used in the thesis. I hope there isn't too much that is incriminating in there! :-) *Update 2*: The "abstract for my thesis":http://leonardolabs.pomona.edu/SearchDetails.aspx?UID=341 is now indexed in "LABS: Leonardo ABstracts Service":http://leonardolabs.pomona.edu/.
