Ironic Post for the Day

Please excuse the inherent irony of using a form of social media (IE. my little blog) to post a video that addresses the rampant use of technology and social media in our world today, but this gentleman’s message struck a cord with me and I had to share.

Geek Alert!!!

I wanted to share the coolest geek device that I’ve seen in a long while.  It’s a new type of computer input device called Leap Motion (  The easiest way to describe it is “Air-touch” technology.  It lets you interact with your computer like a touch-screen, but you don’t have to touch anything but air.  Can you say “Hello, Tony Stark!”? And at $80 per device, you don’t have to have Tony’s money to play with them.

We’ve scored 5 of these awesome little devices for our campus and are working on developing educational end-uses that will enhance our student’s learning experiences.

What is complexity?  In short, I’m refering to complexity science, which is the study of complex systems.  It’s a fairly large and interesting field that I’ve been sucked into by my Sociology professor (Thanks, Brian!).  Interest in this field plus a high level of computer geekyness will land you smack in the middle of computational sociology – which is where I’m at now. has some of the computer models that I’ve worked on.  Some other great resources for this field are the SACS website and the SACS Blog.

For a more comprehensive definition of complexity and computational sociology, give my Sociology of Complexity page a read.

Hello!  First time setting up a blog – so this should be interesting!  Hmmm……15 years in the computer field and never done THIS before – pretty sad!  More to come.

This blog will have a smattering of everything – my writing, computers, complexity – and all other things geeky!
