My made-up zen story

I spent about a decade meditating inside a cave, against a wall. Other people were waiting for me. I left them almost burried in the cold of the snow. Now I rise and walk. Threading lightly, steadily. With other people, I will entertain and enjoy. I will practice more martial arts. I hope true enlightenment will be reached through everyone, together, performing the true hacking of modern thinking machines. With these hopes I start a new stage in life.

The new Computer Vision book

If you'd like to get a broad view of what I work with, take a look at the latest book, launched in November 2010, that represents the state-of-the-art, "Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications", by Richard Szeliski. The digital version of this book is freely available as a PDF at the author's website And the cover reflects 3D reconstruction algorithms that I've been trying to extend through the use of curve and surface differential geometry!
