John Green is at a conference at the Perimeter Institute
That is so close.
My preordered copy of TFIOS still has not been signed or bookplated.
He is at a conference on education and social media with such awesome people as Vihart and CPG Grey. Not to mention Minute Physics.
I want to learn more about social media and education strategies and hang out with awesome people. Uncomferences seem awesome in general as well.
I have class and homework though, so no just hanging out at PI for me.
I really wish I could go to brainSTEM though.
This is blowing my mind.
I think I’ll just carry TFIOS around with me for the next two days.

Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology Website
This (http://www.nano.uwaterloo.ca) is a website I worked on in my second co-op work term. I started by creating mock-ups of various options in Photoshop and then dived into coding.
I inverted the color scheme, redesigned the navigation system, improved readability and changed the overall layout. I also created new backgrounds and matching facebook cover photos (http://www.facebook.com/uwnano).
I improved the organization and commenting of the style files, and heavily documented the entire design process.
Some of the underlying structure and widgets were from the previous site.
EDIT: The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology’s website has been redone in order to conform with the University of Waterloo overarching website design.
For this poster I built all of the shapes out of spherical ‘buckyball’ rare earth magnets. I photographed the structures and then manipulated the images individually in Photoshop before creating the overall poster design.

3-fold Pamphlet for the University of Waterloo Nanorobotics Group.
The right hand panel of the top image is the front, and the right hand panel of the bottom image is the back. The other panels are inside folds.
These were printed and used successfully at conferences.
I have made several Prezi presentation for the University of Waterloo Nanorobotics Group. Links are provided below:

Logo that I designed for my class (Nanotechnology Engineering 2015, University of Waterloo.)
The lightning bolt represents electricity, the gear represents engineering and the beakers represent chemistry. The DNA represents molecular machines and the atom represents quantum. pi and epsilon are two Greek letters we encounter frequently. the calculator both represents math and displays our graduation date. The cat is an allusion to Schrodinger’s cat. The joke is that it is unhappy about being both alive and dead. The circle with two crosses is a reference to something one of our professors frequently drew on the chalk board. Shenanogans in our class name, and the hexagons that both the images and letters are within represent a graphite lattice of carbon atoms.
