Week 10 Podcast Up

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Our last podcast went up on mtgcast. It’s got the usual recap and thanks in there, so give it a listen if you want to hear the closest Tom and I are going to get to being mushy about Magic.

It looks like we already have 1 final paper posted here to the blog. We’ll be reading them and maybe posting the ones that seem like they’d be interesting to the broader public.

I think this blog may go silent, though let us know if there’s anything you want us to write about. The only thing off the top of my head is a U/W standard control deck I’m working on that’s doing half-decent. Since I’m on break now, I might just get the motivation to post that and talk about it some.

Keep us in mind, though, as we may return next summer. We talked to our faculty sponsor, and he said that the dept would be fine having the class taught again next year. If so, we might try to vamp up the material some, including potentially more, deeper content. We want to keep it fresh for us, too.

Until then, thanks for reading! It’s been a great quarter.

Week 9 podcast up

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Our last class session with final presentations was recorded and is available as a podcast.

I’ll withhold comment on anything until our final podcast to be recorded this weekend.

Week 8 podcast up

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Our lecture on Epistemic Logic got posted earlier today, and you can find it here, and slides here.

And with that, we’re pretty much done. That’s the last prepared lecture that we have. Next week is our tournament, the week after is Thanksgiving break, and the week after is the final week of classes with presentations.

It’s pretty amazing how quickly the quarter has gone. Well, some classes have gone by really slowly, but it seems like just yesterday that people were figuring out how to play the game, and I was anxious to start talking about something real. Of course, we’re not done yet, so we’re not into reflection on the class yet.

Tom and I are up in the air on whether we’ll be doing a podcast for this coming week. We really don’t have anything to talk about, but if you know of something you want us to talk about, we’re open to suggestions.

Week 7 Podcast up

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I guess I’ll link.

And show notes

Sorry, the gain at the very beginning is way too high, but I correct it a couple seconds in.

Syllabus Description: This week, George Michelogiannakis, a level 3 DCI judge, will talk about professional Magic. So far, we’ve focused primarily on casual Magic, but there are many tiers of tournaments organized by the DCI and staffed by judges. George will give you a glimpse of this part of Magic culture.

Because it’s a guest lecture, this is actually recorded in class, so there’s a lot more noise and people on this podcast.
