I am trying to keep my website a good deal more fresh. As such, many posts that I would otherwise post here are there instead. Here is a sampling...

Study Clifford Algebras with Me
-----------------------------
I want to learn more about Clifford Algebras. I want you to join me on the journey. I just sent an email to Cambridge University Press asking permission to use the book Clifford Algebras and the Classical Groups by Ian R. Porteous as the outline and springboard for a long series of posts about Clifford [...]

Exponential Spirals for Game Effects
-----------------------------
In earlier posts, I mentioned finding polynomials, riffing off of damped harmonic motion, and then hitting on exponential spirals all trying to come up with a nice looking way to snap game tiles back into place when they are released. I want them to overshoot and then settle into place rather than snap directly [...]

A Eureka Moment
-----------------------------
I was pondering the Phony Physics again as I set to work on my iPhone app. In the previous post, I twiddled the equations for damped spring motion until I found something visually pleasing. Last night, I went back to the drawing (a.k.a. white) board. What if I used an exponential spiral (parameterized by arc length). [...]

Sneak Peak: Artwork for Spelling iPhone App
-----------------------------
My first iPhone app is a children’s spelling game. Development is coming along well now that I’ve discovered cocos2d-iphone. I should have screenshots to show early next week. For now, here is a sneak peak at one of the cards in the game.
