|For a while now I've been reading this project description on the wall near my math/cs classrooms talking about some machine a guy was going to install in the University Center. It was a grid of hanging balls with a camera in it. The idea was that if you walk under it, the balls directly above you will move up. It's supposed to show an impression of the person or something. I thought this was a neat idea so I was looking forward to it for months. They finally installed it in an out of the way area of the UC. In the picture I took, the machine wasn't on. If you're at Clark, you should go try to check it out.
When I study, I generally like to find a quiet place with no one else around. This sometimes means going to extremes. While wandering around the library trying to find a good place to work, I found a bunch of furniture at the bottom of a little-used stairwell. I set up a little work area for myself down there. It's a little cold, and really weird, but it's a pretty nice place to work. I finally remembered to bring my camera (well, actually I just forgot it was in my pocket) and took some pictures of it, including a neat panorama! the area is on the 1st "floor". The 2nd floor door doesn't open, so to get out I have to go all the way up to the 3rd floor. Good thing there's an emergency exit at the bottom of the stairwell!
