I am building a mesh network inspired by networks and swarm behaviours. When we think about swarms, we typically visualize flocking behaviours of birds and insects. They move as individual autonomous entities, but work and act together to accomplish common goals.
There are many mathematical models to simulate this phenomenon, producing complex group behaviours and patterns with simple sets of prescribed rules to individual agents:
Last quarter, I really enjoyed the natural dye shibori workshop that Amy Taylor brought us to, during which I dyed my lab coat. Professor Victoria also introduced us to a world of origami and paper crane, as long as her Bird Song Diamond project, Since then, I have been fascinated with Japanese culture, especially shibori and origami.(The lab coat I dyed)
The trip to Google was really impressive, not just in terms of the office amenities and perks, but also getting to experience what the culture is like and how it might actually feel to work there.
