It's been a while since my last diary entry, but I've been working hard on my lab projects. Unfortunately I can't talk much about it until we get our NASA contract signed.
In other news, I've launched a robotics wiki to try and make a collaborative resource for robotics. It's got a lot of stuff in it already for being such a new wiki. I've also decided to make the content available under a Creative Commons license, so that it's essentially a free resource.
Most of my time is spent on IRC chatting about robots and helping people with their projects. You can find me on irc.freenode.org in #robotics. If you don't know how to use IRC, read here
The wiki URL is: roboticswiki.org
I'm also very interested in compiling a robot zoo, or an exhaustive list of robots past and present. My vision for it is to become a kind historical record of the robot population. I have to acknowledge that this is a highly difficult task, but I think it can be accomplished with a collaborative effort.
