InHisNamemorning Randy and waltman12:18
InHisNamewaltman:  I started reading your dissertation, up to ch2.12:19
waltmanInHisName: Nice! Any comments?12:20
InHisNameI was going to make a snide comment on a CS expert discussing traffic engineering and "lane changing" etc.   BUT.....12:21
InHisNameThen as I started reading past the tables of contents, I could see in ch1 how it all fits into your thesis.12:21
waltmanThe data for the driving chapter comes from an experiment my advisor did when was doing a postdoc at Nissan.12:22
waltmanAnd yes, my argument is that my tool can help the real traffic and driving engineers.12:24
InHisNameIn one diagram of web browsing, with swirly lines everywhere, one of the canonical paths was singular line.12:24
waltmanOne of the issues I had is that most similarity methods favor shorter protocols12:25
InHisNameAnd another path had a dozen lines to intermediate point and about dozen to next point,  and that was same point the canonical path joined.  Why did it choose the WAY less 'popular' path for the same number of points ?12:26
InHisNameI'm only in ch2 so far so maybe you explain that later.12:28
waltmanYou mean why did it pick that particular curvy line that goes down to the bottom?12:28
waltmanIn chapter 4 I talk about how I computed how similar each path was to each other path.12:28
InHisNameLets call the first 3 points  home, B, and C  --  B is connected to home & C with single line (one user followed that path.)    Home, Bprime, and C  -- Bprime is connected by dozen or so paths from home and C (12 or so users chose to follow that path)   Why (or what chap did you explain this) is the singular start a canonical path ?12:31
SamuraiAlbaWaltman - As a CS major, people will EXPECT you to help them on web pages.  DO NOT DO THIS -->  www.sweissman.com12:31
InHisNameb'fast, later.12:31
SamuraiAlbab'fast sounds nice12:32
waltmanWell, one answer to that is that I'm not counting how many people took each path.12:32
SamuraiAlbaand grats on the paper :)  I'll be reading it :)12:33
SamuraiAlbaalso, my friend went to drexel.  Graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelors in finance.12:34
SamuraiAlbaand is in MASSIVE debt LOL.  I see the irony.12:34
SamuraiAlbaWhat made you choose CS?12:34
waltmanI'd think most finance majors would have jobs to let them pay off their loans pretty quickly :)12:35
waltmanSamuraiAlba: Well, I was a math major as an undergrad, but I'd been working as a programmed for 19 years before I went back to grad school.12:36
SamuraiAlbaI'm ahving issues... with math :(12:36
waltmanI've got a fair amount of math in chapter 3 :)12:37
SamuraiAlbaIt's funny... I can do wireless 2.4ghz antenna design...12:37
waltmanIt's more straightforward than it might seem at first glance.12:38
SamuraiAlbabut if I see "lambda" one more time...12:38
waltmanSamuraiAlba: Oops, I've got a bunch of lambdas :)12:38

InHisNameSamuraiAlba: I see 1293 points,  7995 up votes and 6702 down votes   -  so where does 1726 come from ?    Hrmmm all the comments aren't about you, the blind guy, or your girlfriend but the  the kid having his habitat beat up on by THOR.13:04
InHisNameSamuraiAlba:  that is sure to be overload demands of waltman that he could not possibly have any spare time to even drop by.13:07
* waltman notes that it's about a 45 minute drive each way to the site of the geeknic...13:08
InHisNamewaltman: just ignore him, and come anyway, besides a laptop with document editor is all you need to continue.  At least for an hour or two, till you need another picture   not on the drive.13:08
