Berkeley’s Longest Paths

December 12, 2008 at 6:36 am Leave a comment

I have no idea how I first came across this — and actually forgot about it until cleaning up my desktop this morning. But “Berkeley’s Longest Paths or, why I took so long to graduate” by A. A. Efros is a romantic, nostalgic, and inspired collection of the author’s favorite walking and hiking paths throughout the greater Berkeley, California area.

In the footnote on the first page, Efros notes that his reflection of pedestrianism in northern California was originally tucked away as an appendix in his 2003 doctoral thesis, “Data-driven Approaches for Texture and Motion,” and “will likely become the most useful part of this present manuscript.”

I don’t have the rest of your thesis, A. A., but I found myself smiling this afternoon as I took a sunset stroll along a part of Berkeley that I had not yet otherwise explored (and probably would not have known about) if it weren’t for your collection of walking and hiking paths. Many thanks!

play, think…
