I’m breaking the long silence here to mention that amongst the other reasons I’ve been quiet, I am now working on a book with my friend and mentor, John Russ. The tentative title of the book is Measuring Shape, which describes its subject pretty accurately. We’re intending this work to be a good handbook for people who are looking to measure and classify shapes in images. This is a subject in which I’ve done some work on and off for the past decade or so and I’m super-excited to finally be condensing my knowledge into something concise. I’m also very excited to be working with John professionally for the first time in quite a few years. As we get deeper into this project, I’ll share more about where we’re going and hopefully get some feedback on topics that might be of interest.
