It’s been two years that I’ve made this ceramic diffuser. The top of the castle can be filled with water and scented oil. And when you place a candle inside the castle the heat of the candle makes the scented oil to evaporate. It took sixteen hours to make it, even with the help of my teacher Nedoglou Stella, who I thank greatly! The colors are her advice and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.

Two players compete to either build their Tower to a height of 137 or destroy the tower of the opponent. To do this, players have to develop a strategy for playing their cards. This is a turn-based game. On every turn, a new card is placed from the Deck to the Hand of the Player.
I always found Transactional Analysis fascinating. Not so much for the theory behind “the games people play” as for the three-part model that help us categorize communication. The next four videos give an excellent crash course on the TA model.
The simplest algorithm and you can get great looking graphics. More than that – you get graphics that are full of abstract, archetypical, almost mystical knowledge.
Let me explain myself… The algorithm is very simple. We loop to find the coordinates for a circle’s perimeter whilst varying the circle’s radius. As this change of the radius fluctuates it give rise to a million of shapes, all following a symmetry and morphing between each other.
Research Links on Diagrams
Here you can find some links that I’ve found very important in my work in diagrams. If you are interested in diagrams then you can check my research on Diagram-Based Computer Based Assessment and my diagrammatics course!
CAA, CBA & Diagram Links
And here are some links that have been important to the CAA,CBA, and diagrammatic side of my work. For a full review you can check the second chapter of my phd dissertation “Diagram Based Computer Based Assessment.
A Course in Diagrammatics
In 2001 I’ve compiled the resources for a four-part “Diagrammatics” course. I’ve taught it few times. Sometimes as a full-blown four hours lecture but most times I just pick up the relevant bits.

OOA/OOD Related Links
The following links have been useful whilst trying to understand, research and teach Object-Oriented related topics. Going to conferences was a great way to meet people that were facing the same set of problems and discuss solutions. This eventually got me into being interested in Software Patterns, Aspect Orientation and Meta-level architectures.
Unified Modelling Language (UML) allows us to describe and document elements of knowledge that map well into the object oriented paradigm.
A metasystem is a system that describes how to create a system.
