Only Me and Me


Leaving for my last final & some good news

I am heading off to my last final in just a minute.

But before that, here is some good news:

Our paper "EcoPod: A Mobile Tool for Community Based Biodiversity Collection Building" has won the Vannevar Bush Best Paper Award at ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2006.

As the first author of our paper and the main software developer of the EcoPod project, I am very glad to hear this and proud of it. Two years ago, another paper from my group "Automatic Organization for Digital Photographs with Geographic Coordinates" (first author & main developer: Mor Naaman, Stanford PhD) also won the same award. It’s a great feeling to restore the honor.

Honor represents the work of past. I typically do not celebrate too much in these occassions (and that’s the case when I got admisson letter from Carnegie Mellon University or got job offer from Microsoft & Google). I guess it’s a personality issue. I tend to be on the other end of the spectrum (read: dark side) in most cases. But in the recent days of continuous dismalness and endless mental struggle, little things like this can at least cheer me up for a short while.

Which should be just enough to carry me over the last exam.
