Doing the Martin Shuffle

Fun Peter Norvig post on using randomized techniques to listen to a particular song on an iPod shuffle: Doing the Martin Shuffle (with your iPod). The ‘Martin’ of the ‘Martin Shuffle’ is Charles Martin. Charles was the 2nd grad student of Chris Riesbeck‘s to graduate; I was the 3rd. We both did NLP research, and Charles was my boss for two days (if I remember correctly) when I joined “Intell/Agent Systems,” which now seems like a long time ago.
