White Belt, Plus Dance Geeks and Math Geeks Unite!

The little dude got his white belt today. So proud!

And in a completely unrelated story, check out this Hungarian folk dance representation of bubble sort mathematics. It's the intersection of two forms of geekery!
Note - in the embedded form, you'll only see the left half of the video, so click through to see the whole thing in YouTube. I'll get around to fixing the formatting at some point.



If that isn't enough, here's a shell sort, with better music:



Finally, a select sort, which takes so long that they actually sped up the video. It sure gives a sense of which are efficient algorithms!

Looking good in his TKD uniform.
Grown up a lot.

Good demo of binary sorting.
