January 11th marked the beginning of my third of five semesters for my Masters in Computer Science. This semester, as in previous semesters, I am taking two courses:
- CSE 820: Advanced Computer Architecture
- CSE 891: Selected Topics in Natural Language Processing: Language and Interaction
If you have anything that you would like me to bring up to either group, you can send me an email. I will also be attending the Computer Science and Engineering Graduate Student Association (CSEGA) meetings.

I wrote this poem in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday. Today marks 30 years of Michigan State University recognizing Dr. King and his legacy. We’ve made a lot of victories in those thirty years, but we have a lot more victories to come. The road ahead doesn’t have an end, but many victorious victories lie along it’s route.
A moment of silence A moment of silence With one camera flash, the picture reminded us of A fist clenched tight Eyes wide open Attention is focused Barriers were broken So much love Replaced so much hate A dream stopped short, We lose another great A moment of silence A moment of silence With one gun blast Fills the world with violence Rest in peace Dr. MLK Jr. We can't sit idle, your dream is our future

Today I was working on some charts using the Google Charts API and I decided to take a look at some of the documentation. Many of the X-axis labels on the chart I have are overlapping and I’m trying to fix it:
So in the process, I started looking at the data scaling section of their documentation, and they had a nice graph with a lot of data points but only a couple labels:
I wanted to see exactly how this was done and so I viewed the source of the image, which when using the Google Charts API tells exactly how the chart is being rendered.
That’s when I came across E. E. Cumming‘s poem “i thank You God for most this amazing” embedded in the URL.
