I stayed overnight in Pismo Beach, and woke up early, thinking that'd give me lots of time to see the Central Valley. But … DOLPHINS! Surfing! I didn't leave early.
Taking Amtrak from SLO to L.A. was awesome for similar reasons. - Neal Krummell
I've still not done that route! :( - Amit Patel
My only trip on Amtrak was an 18 hour trip from Atlanta to New York, complete with overflowing toilets and very shady passengers. - Todd
My few west coast Amtrak trips have been rather pleasant. Probably because most everyone has a car… - Amit Patel

Restoration of defocused and blurred images.
"Restoration of distorted images is one of the most interesting and important problems of image processing - from the theoretical, as well as from the practical point of view. There are especial cases: blurring due to incorrect focus and blurring due to movement - and these very defects (which each of you knows very well, and which are very difficult to repair) were selected as the subject of this article." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

Graphics research is amazing. This project: sketch and label something you want a photo of, then the system finds photos on the web, cuts out the parts that it wants, and composes everything together. Watch the video too. - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Graphics programmers have the best demos. Hands down. - no name

"Cell phones have a small aperture, hence a large depth of field. In other words, most of the scene is in focus at once.  However, if you record video while moving the phone slightly, and you add the frames of the video together, you can simulate the large aperture of an SLR. This app lets you do that." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

What if Gtk apps ran on HTML instead of X11? Well, you could run Gtk apps inside a browser, right? What kinds of apps? How about a text editor (gedit)? How about a graphics editor (gimp)? How about … a web browser??? - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

"In the settlement, the agency pledged to inform its officers of the public’s general right to photograph the exteriors of federal courthouses. Now, the civil liberties group has received a redacted version of the directive that was sent out last year. Significantly, it embraces federal buildings — not just courthouses — nationwide. The three-page bulletin reminds officers, agents and employees that, “absent reasonable suspicion or probable cause,” they “must allow individuals to photograph the exterior of federally owned or leased facilities from publicly accessible spaces” like streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas. Even when there seems to be reason to intercede and conduct a “field interview,” the directive says: Officers should not seize the camera or its contents, and must be cautious not to give such ‘orders’ to a photographer to erase the contents of a camera, as this constitutes a seizure or detention."" - Simon from Bookmarklet

This looks really cool. Anyone tried this app? - Simon from Bookmarklet
I tried the free version and it seems to work. There were some minor glitches but I was impressed. - Amit Patel
It's especially nice that they do it all locally. Google's translate tools are neat, but I need them most when I'm traveling, which is when my data connection is least likely to work well. - Seth

CDE: automatic packaging of Code, Data, and Environment (easily run Linux programs with no installation) -
"CDE is a tool that automatically packages up the Code, Data, and Environment involved in running any set of Linux commands so that they can execute identically on another computer without any installation or configuration. A command can range from something as simple as a command-line utility to a sophisticated GUI application with 3D graphics. The only requirement is that the other computer have the same hardware architecture (e.g., x86) and major kernel version (e.g., 2.6.X) as yours. CDE allows you to easily run programs without the dependency hell that inevitably occurs when attempting to install software or libraries. You can use CDE to allow your colleagues to reproduce and build upon your computational experiments, to quickly deploy software to a compute cluster or the cloud (e.g., Amazon EC2), and to submit executable bug reports." - Amit Patel
