Being a bad blogger I haven’t been blogging enough about what I’ve been doing. I’ve been too busy doing it. To rectify that a bit, here’s a summary of what I’ve been up to holographically. Continue reading What have I been doing?
Parts I and II are part of my original blogging back before I started using blog software.
This is a continuation of the some of the discussion from this thread.
I’ve done a ton of testing over the last few days, changing air in my inner tubes, swapping lasers and optics, moving my big laser off the table, wandering around the house doing various housely things and recording what happens to the fringes in an interferometer.
Alright, I’ve been yelled at by a few people for not updating my blog but it’s St. Patrick’s season (bet you didn’t know it’s a season and not just a day) so Susan I have been overly busy with dancing and I haven’t been a good blog citizen. Continue reading What be happenin?
It’s not completely filled out yet but it’s got a good beginning.
The new holography Wiki at HoloWiki is available and if you’d like to participate give Colin Kaminski a shout. This is a great opportunity to help build up the encyclopedia of holography that we all wish we’d had when starting out.
Under very dim lighting I opened thecardboard mailer to find a 4×5” stack of film packed in a tightly fitting black plastic bag. Very tightly fitting. Getting the film stack back in was a pain. The film was sandwiched between two small pieces of cardboard. I haven’t counted to make sure there are 10 pieces of film but that’s what’s listed on the label.
I held the first session of a new holography class at Carpenter Park Recreation Center last night.
It went well although only one of the two students showed. Fortunately she was a sharp young lady and while the session wasn’t as structured as I’d planned I think it went pretty as she was asking good questions and clearly was "getting it".
So, Google’s motto used to be "Don’t be Evil". Or so I heard, I’ll have to check the Internet Archive later to see if that’s true. Their current motto is "You can make money without doing evil" which may have always been their motto and just paraphrased to death.
Since going public, their motto of course is "Don’t be so evil that we can’t make tons of money."
