Sad Monday :(

leave a comment »

Last Monday, we failed to present to our classmates and advisers the progress of our project. The program works fine (although the time to connect the Sunspot to the program took a lot of time)  however, when we try to connect it to the projector, the program crashes. We think this is due to some hardware issues of my partner’s laptop 😦

When the new laptop arrived, we tested if the same problem will still occur. Luckily, it didn’t happen. The connection of Sunspot to the program became fast compared before.  Our problem was solved as of now…

More updates later…..

This is too late to say, but still, WELCOME TO WSG!

Our group decided to make a mobile baby book. Truth is, at first we were not all excited about the project. We thought it was an easy project where all we need to worry about is the user interface. Well, we were wrong. We did not immediately grasp the idea that the project has a medical twist. We thought we were only making a virtual scrapbook. Read the rest of this entry »

Welcoming and Wondering

leave a comment »

Hello cs 198 lab mates and advisers! Here I am (and here we are) again blogging my thesis adventures with my partner Jhie. At least I won’t be Video Blogging anymore (haha peace Sir Rom!) preparing the camera, making the script, and youtube-ing or seesmic-ing myself to the world. Haha.

We were welcomed by first showing TEDxUP talks. Indeed, the talks were very interesting and inspiring. Humans are unstoppable when it comes to inventing and using the latest technologies available. Technologies, yup. Welcome to Web Science Lab.

After those talks and some lunch, we went directly to the orientation. First thing to do, identify your research topic. Pressure. We had ideas before, but we never knew those ideas would be different from what we chose. Our topic — yet another game based learning application. And what makes this different? Soon.
