"Dual Boxing" Google's Pacman

On a completely useless turn of events today, as Google marks the 30th anniversary of Pac Man, I somehow ended up trying to play Pac Man with Mrs. Pac Man dual handed in my keyboard. I understand that technically this is not dual boxing, but I like to think I did something analogous to that.

Invited paper

Today was one of the best days of my academic career so far, aside the stress mode that has undertaken my side of the lab thanks to a demo which is due to the middle of the month. I have been invited to give a talk in the Workshop on Goal-Directed Autonomy at the next AAAI conference. At the moment, though, this is a mixed blessing, as I am almost completely occupied by said demo, papers for the next ACITA conference, and getting ready for the meetings with my research collaborators at AAMAS in the upcoming week.
This is being a hell of a month, but in a sense, it is good to feel that I am being incredibly productive in these last weeks, I just hope to be able to cope with the pressure that will be put on me as the month progresses.
