SRL – Technical Discussion

Re: Seven Red Lines

Via #1 Son:

Thought you’d appreciated the discussion at my work about this:

TC Embarrassingly, I’ve done the opposite in meetings.
Requester: I want two perpendicular lines.
PM: Drawing two perpendicular lines is really hard. No resources for it.
Dev: Actually, I can do that in an hour.
PM: /facepalm

JH Increase the dimensionality and you can certainly get 7 lines all perpendicular to each other.

K Can you show me that on a whiteboard?

JH As for the color part, I feel like there was an xkcd about this recently…http://xkcd.com/1351/

PA The internet has everything, even seven dimensional orthogonal vectors

JC Projecting seven dimensions down to two dimensions doesn’t seem to work very well. Also, the colors are wrong.

GM but the question is, can you make them red and transparent?
