Hey everybody. I know it's been awhile since I wrote on my blog, so I'm just going to give you a semi brief update. I here in alaska now, been here for about 2-3 days (depending on which time zone you're in). I met the other interns and my advisor for the duration of the internship. My advisor/mentor's name is Dr. Greg Newby, and he has picked a very cool project for me to do. I will be attempting to visualize weather data on Google Earth! So I get to make some sort of simulation that actually shows semi-live weather! Also, Dr. Newby wants to have this visualization done in Second Life, which is a 3d online community. I've been asleep for a few hours, recuperating from the TeraGrid group competition. It took hours.... and we didnt get all of the problems done.... I guess it just wasnt our day lol. Anyways, we'll still be in the top three ^_^ so im not too worried. Today, I'll be prepping the two computers that I will be using for my internship and playing around with Google Earth and Second Life. If anyone wants to know more, either call me or send me a message.
By the way.... The weather is practically perfect! And so is the view!
