Wandering Pedestrians is a true student blog. We’re not recieving compensation (grades, monetary or otherwise) for writing. We’re writing because we like to write, like to communicate.

But we’re not alone.

I recently enabled the Blogroll section of our sidebar. The Blogroll gives us an opportunity to highlight some websites/blogs we’re reading. I wanted to highlight two of the blogs on the “roll” as other awesome examples of student blogging.

  • The Great IV – Go Koshka, Bani, Stunji and Pao! Admittedly these are some of the most unique people I know (with accompanying unique opinons). I think their blog is coming to reflect that.
  • Radioxide – Wandering Pedestrians too…carsy…for you? Check out Radioxide. Jordan’s Radioxide is admittedly more artsy, more inspirational, than Wandering Pedestrians will ever be.

Pandora: Like a Radio Station, Only Better October 24, 2006

Pandora (http://www.pandora.com) is an interesting service I just discovered. Once you sign up for an account, it asks you to choose a song you like. Put in either a title or an artist, and it will find songs similar to that song or artist’s style and play them like a radio station, only commercial free. Also, you can give a song the thumbs up to play more songs similar to it, or give it the thumbs down to stop playing it and play fewer similar songs. You don’t have to give an opinion on every song. As time passes, in theory, Pandora will get closer and closer to a perfect radio station for you.

You don’t have to limit yourself to one starting song, either. You can create multiple “stations” for yourself, each playing a different kind of music, then shuffle between them though something called “Quick Mix.”

Another nice feature is that you can share your radio stations with other people; just give them the link and they can listen to your station. You can even let people listen to your Quick Mix. It’s a really cool system.

Looking around FaceBook, I’ve noticed that a certain flavor of Linux, Ubuntu, has a kind of cult following. I’d never heard of it – but those that have love it.

I’m in the process of installing Ubuntu on my laptop. Here’s the real question I intend to answer: I the “linux for humans” Ubuntu advertises really usable for non-computer science PhDs.

Great sayings by Sir Winston Churchill October 9, 2006

1. I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.

2.Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conversative, has no brains.

3. Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.

4. I like things to happen; and if they don’t happen, I like to make them happen.

5. Fear not!
When I look back on all the worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened.

6. A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
