Long time I’ve not written a word here. It’s mainly cause other media streams are capturing all the news in my professional life and the clicks of interesting sites. Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, etc.
I’m not sure why, but it seems that WP lost in this battle. I probably need a quick: add to the blog button somewhere in the toolbar.
Otherwise, trying to manage the research/teaching/administrative duties with the family time. And of course to push forward both OpenPIV and OpenPTV
So, one interesting image meanwhile:
Leaving work late
It became difficult to stay an anonymous scientist these days – with or without our permission, every single thing you do is linked, related and compared to some index, some group of similar interests, etc. The initiatives such as http://www.researchgate.net and http://www.academia.edu are making our life simpler in some sense, but at the same time very difficult: you need to be really determined to avoid it.
Please, check out http://www.openptv.net and think if you have some time to help us to make it real
What bothers me most these days
Long time not see, I guess that’s what you think when look at my blog from time to time. Indeed, I almost completely switched to Google+ (general interests), Facebook (family, friends), Twitter and LinkedIn for professional updates, etc. Why? Maybe because I was never really the blogger – I am too lazy to write, I am keeping the blog mostly for publicity related to my work: fluid mechanics, turbulence, research, teaching and open source software that I believe we need to promote: http://www.openptv.net is the new consortium that must come true and the older, established http://www.openpiv.net that has ups and downs since 1998.
But it doesn’t seem like Brownian motion to me. What do you say?
The open source particle tracking velocimetry foundation is initiated,eventually. Every interested side is welcome to join on www.openptv.net
Today I visited the experimental site of EOLOS – the wind energy project of St. Anthony Falls Laboratory. It’s absolutely amazing thing to stand close to the large wind turbine in action.
