[11/02/2016] Had a pretty great day. In the morning, Oh My Dollar! had its premiere on the radio, then I went to the gym for the first time in 4 days (argh! being sick is the worst!)

The rest of the day was taken up by prepping for my Ignite talk that evening & doing website updates for Oh My Dollar! This is the makeup & wig I wore with my Ziggy Stardust costume to give an ignite talk at OMSI on "What if Ziggy Stardust was a CPA?"

 

Yes, I went a bit overboard on photoshop with this one. I'm still sick (had a bit of a backslide) and not making a ton of progress otherwise on work, so might as well have some fun.

If you are a person that I have taken a photo of, it's yours (but I'd still be curious as to where it is).

An Introduction to Hyperbolic Geometry

Speaker Amber Case

Biography

 

Amber Case is a Cyborg Anthropologist studying the interaction between humans and computers and how technology affects culture. She consults with a number of large and small companies on extending online presence. In her free time, she does independent research and has exceedingly long conversations.

 

Case gave her first lecture on Hyperbolic Geometry to her mathematics class at age 14. She hasn't given one since, but uses the mathematics all the time.

Description

 

Traditional geometry is something we all learned in school. Some of us like it, and the rest of us don't. In traditional geometry, parallel lines stay parallel, and triangles are always 180 degrees. Theses are the rules, and they cannot be broken.

 

Enter Hyperbolic Geometry. It's not new, but it is an AWESOME field of mathematics. Basically, it breaks all the rules.

 

In this presentation, I'll demonstrate some of the history and implications of this field, a field that has inspired Escher and sent Euclid rolling in his grave. I'll also explain the mysterious 5th Postulate and how all of this applies to the web.

 

Sound complicated? Don't panic! I'll use a lot of pictures and analogies. And with all of the beer you'll all be consuming, the ideas should enter your brain smoothly and enjoyable. This won't hurt a bit.
