Okay, so I just came back from a talk by one of the greatest people I have the pleasure of knowing, Adrian Sannier. He gave a great talk, but in a nutshell, his message was this: start a blog to show off your work and your thoughts, and good things will come from it. So I'm doing just that.
So, to start off, I'm Ken. I work at the Virtual Reality Applications Center at Iowa State University as a research assistant. They're hoping to kick me out at the end of next semester, but we'll just see about that. I love programming--mainly graphics, games, and virtual reality. When I can, I combine all of those to make some amazing things. And amazing isn't a word I just throw around. For something to be amazing, it has to amaze people. Not just me, but other people around me. People who work with me and people who've been around the block a few times and people who could care less about what I do. And I'd like to think I do have some amazing things to share with the world, which is why I'm gonna stick them on here for everyone to see. So go ahead and subscribe to this blog. Tell your friends to subscribe to this blog. Because when I post things, they're gonna be the latest and greatest of what I'm doing....or they may be things I've done in the past that I think are worth showing to the world. There might also be some martial arts stuff in here too, because great stories and pictures come out of punching and kicking other people. All I know for sure is it'll be fun and interesting.
....this is kind of awkward. I've never really written a blog entry before, except my lame blog on myspace that I never update. I have to say I don't really know how I'm supposed to close an entry. I suppose I could just say come back when I post my next entry. It'll be either about Perlin noise or my killer Virtual Reality program called SkyPaint...I haven't decided which. Until next time...
