The lecture at GWU inspired me :-)

I used to live near the line of symmetry:
My old dorm room is wedged between the reflections of the E St. building

Dupont Circle Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

I used one of the smallest tessellations yet to make this. The source imagery of the tiled Dupont Circle was only 2,600 pixels, but I made the right calculations to keep spatial resolution very similar the final product the same as the source (I counted how many times I saw the full tiled go across and multipled by 2,600). I like how it turned out, but I wish there was more merging of the circle itself, as in the circle itself would become a larger circle around the center. Up next, I am going to make one using nothing but imagery of GWU.

Below is a listing of TV hits that mention or feature our Wal-Mart protest in the DC Area and surrounding states.
It seems the story has been mentioned nearly 40 times so far….

Union Newswire

For Nikolas Schiller, it’s Wal-Mart’s attempt to open a bank in Utah a
bank that, of course, would not help local people and would run other
banks out of business.

preparing…
|| 11/14/2005 || 11:39 pm || Comments Off on preparing… || ||

I spent all Sunday and all of this evening, and will most likely spend most of day preparing for my presentation on Wednesday. I’ve made about 20 slides thus far and I’m not even half-way done yet! I did a trial run of the presentation so far, and I’m already past a half hour. This will be, without a doubt, the longest presentation I’ve ever given, but I realize when you talk about something you love, time will fly by!



USDA, where is your organic?
|| || 6:42 pm || Comments Off on USDA, where is your organic? || ||

So earlier today I went to the USDA’s GIS Day at the USDA’s main building at 12th & Independence for work. We setup a booth for the My Community, Our Earth Program to show USDA employees the importance of geographic education for sustainable development. While I have been to the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) building before, this was the first time I have been in their main building. We setup in the back of the cafeteria, and after we had discussed our projects to the other exhibitors we were given the green light to go and get some “USDA chow.” I was sincerely hoping to find some organic USDA chow, but instead I found your typical pesticide ridden SYSCO food service grub. I am still quite amazed to be honest…. Is there no employee who prefers organic food at the USDA? You’d think they’d want to have that food available to show that they are serious about the program, but instead there was no mention of it- no logo anywhere. If I could go back there again, I’d definitely like to find one of the employees working on the program and pick there brain for a bit. Literally, I’d like to see them put their money where their mouth is!
