It was not until Costas told me the Zen that the life is a Marathon instead of a sprint that I started to try my first half Marathon in Pasadena (1:51:07).
My first full Marathon is with Christof, McKell and Fatma in the splendid Death Valley on December 4th, 2010.
While running, it would be really cool to read all your body parameters (pace, heart rate, altitude, laps, and of course, time) in real time. To satiate my appetite for data, I have purchased a Garmin Forerunner 305 (and I have successfully persuaded Christof to buy another one).
Unfortunately, the software that comes along with the Garmin watch is incredibly shabby from a signal processing perspective. A better implementation can be found here (I wrote this for Christof since his "more advanced" Macbook is not well supported by the Garmin).
Since 2009, I discovered my talents in this new frontier and began to engage in various forms of theater arts, including stage plays and films. And of course, I have read that famous book (also in Chinese) by Stanislavski.
I translated Christof's Quest for Consciousness (from English to Chinese, in collaboration with Professor Fanji Gu from Fudan University). This dinosaur project costs me over 600 hours of hard working!
I am very proud of the quality of the translation. Hope our translation encourages more students and friends into this field of computation, vision, and neuroscience.
Sample chapters will be available soon.
I was the rhythm guitarist of Red Fume (2006.1 - 2007.7). In gradschool, it is very difficult for me to dedicate regularly to a band. Instead, I just put all my rigs into K-Lab and make some noise after midnight.
My current rigs are:
Here are some of my favorite bands/individuals: Judas Priest, Savatage, Joe Satriani, Stratovarious, Scorpions, Sonata Arctica, Dream Theater
