[This week I presented at the 2015 Huskey Research Exhibition at UVA. The talk was delivered from very schematic notes, but below is a rough recreation of what I discussed. The talk I gave is a crash course in a new project I’ve started working on with the generous help of the Scholars’ Lab that thinks…. Continue reading “Hearing Silent Woolf”.
A monkey is easily flummoxed by a coconut. A hole is cut into the coconut and filled with sweet food (or something shiny). The monkey slips her hand into the coconut, grasps the treat, and is trapped. She can readily unhand the treat (or shiny object), but is unwilling to let go. Letting go, for….

Circuit boards, breadboards, digital inputs/output pins, analog outputs – “physical computing” can be an intimidating prospect for people with no experience. As a person with almost no experience, I know these apprehensions first-hand. Learning a new vocabulary, basic electronics, even basic programming? Ah! I’m writing from my own experience with Arduino to say this: getting…. Continue reading “Getting “under the hood” with Arduino”.
The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Greetings! I am Swati Chawla, a second year PhD student at the department of history. The question, “Can the masters’ tools dismantle the masters’ house?” posed at a dhpoco talk last year resonated with my work on Tibetan exile in India, and was the reason I applied for the Praxis….

And,…. Continue reading “Let’s Play”.
