I missed (or was spared, depending on your point of view) the Disney Princess stage — neither Crash nor The Boy were much into pink or tulle. One of the things I've been doing on this leave is playing with new software. I've wanted to learn to animate for a while, but the tools (outside of Mathematica) had a long and steep learning curve. Enter my iPad and a great app for making quick and dirty animations. I watched 3 videos, less than two minutes each, and in less than an hour put together a very rough animation of a Möbius strip for my talk on Wednesday at local Jesuit University. Disney has nothing to worry about, but at least now that I know what I'm doing, I should be fast enough to do things on the fly for class — or the blog.
