I was gently roused at 7:30 this morning. I’ve been exhausted recently, still trying to recover physically and mentally from my recent epic 5-day journey to LA/Boston/NYC, so I wanted to sleep in. The light from the window was bright, but much softer than usual, which didn’t make sense, I thought to myself. Santa Barbara has been rather gloomy (which hasn’t helped me regain my energy), so why was it so bright just before sunrise? Then it dawned on me. Fog.
Recently, I recreated the original Pocket Doc insulin calculator created way back in 1985 by Dr. Jovanovič (who I work with), Dr. Peterson, and Chanoch. Part of my continuing study of diabetes and partly a programming exercise, it’s reminded me how truly remarkable the advancements in diabetes management have been in the last few decades.

For you rising speedcubers, I will now try to convince you to cube one-handed with your right hand. Continue reading Why you should cube with your right hand

Out of sheer luck, perhaps, I won the Fewest Move Contest at today’s tournament with a 29-turn solution, which ties me at 6th in North America and 53rd (or so) in the world. Whoa.
CFOP, aka. the Fridrich Method, is the wildly popular Rubik’s Cube solving method used by virtually all high- and mid-level speedcubers. It gained popularity in the early 2000s because Jessica Fridrich’s website was the only thorough tutorial and algorithm library. Still, methods like Petrus, Roux, and ZZ have their merits too, so why has CFOP persisted? This article describes the numerous strengths of CFOP that most of us never pause to appreciate, especially the unique advantages that cement it as an accessible and effective speedcubing method.
Sara Bareilles and OneRepublic at the Santa Barbara Bowl, Sept 10, 2013, my first live concert ever. Of course, being me, I attended with the mindset of the photographer, and I figured if I was going to take pictures I was going to do it right. FRONT ROW, YEAH! Continue reading Sara Bareilles OneRepublic concert!
The ambigram I’m using for my logo is actually the first one I ever designed years ago in high school. It’s tricky business designing a word that can be read both right-side up and upside down, but I was curious to see if I could create one for myself. The original drafting has since been lost, but I recount my designing here.
