Scribble

Scribble is an enhanced whiteboard app with a focus on making the drawing process feel natural. While the traditional keyboard-and-mouse setup is great for text, it hardly helps with equations, diagrams, and drawings. With Scribble, you can use whatever hardware you have available to draw, scan, edit, share, and collaborate in real-time with colleagues and friends anywhere.

    I grew up on a hill farm in North East England, spending my youth handling sheep on the heather moorland. I did a math degree of the University of Warwick, and then, unable to give up the habit, did masters in math at the University of Cambridge, and then signed up for yet another math degree here in Princeton. I caught the coding bug in my third year here, when I took COS126. I spent last summer at KAUST in Saudi Arabia where I oversaw high school students doing research, helping them write programs in Python for their projects. After taking COS226 Algorithms and Data Structures this fall, I ended up teaching COS226 this semester. I’m still working with some of my KAUST students on their projects, but communicating maths over such great distance can be struggle. Which brings me to Scribble Naturally. Apart from this internship giving me the opportunity to move from theory to practice, I’m passionate about the project. It means collaboration beyond geography, beyond borders, made easy. For example, my students in Saudi Arabia: STEM education in Saudi Arabia basically sucks. There is no-one local who is going to help them write their paper, give them direction on what experiment to try next, how to analyze their results, encourage them to pursue the things they’re curious about. If we can communicate more fluidly, if we can upload a paper and talk through it in real time, highlighting and annotating, scribbling… what this means is that they can more fully realize their ideas. That’s important, and that’s Scribble Naturally.

    Greg Gauthier is a fifth-year graduate student at Princeton University in mathematics.  He studies structural graph theory and expects to receive his Ph.D. in June 2017.  He received his B.A. from Vanderbilt University in 2012 as a math and economics major (with a Spanish minor).  In researching graph theory, he has developed mathematically-oriented programming experience, which together with his experience working with mathematicians, makes him well suited to cost-saving effective online mathematical collaboration for the current and future generations of mathematicians.

    I am a sophomore studying math and computer science interested in developing technology that can enhance human interactions. I have developed a Slack bot that can be used in hackathons to simplify team-building, and I am currently a part of the Undergraduate Student Government’s IT Committee developing a website that students could use to find student groups more conveniently. In my spare time, I enjoy playing games and developing mods for them.

    I first attended Princeton as an undergraduate (class of 2011) and after completing a master’s program at Cambridge, I returned to Princeton to work on a PhD in mathematics. I am now in my final year. As an undergraduate, I relied heavily on my Lenovo tablet for taking notes and doing homework. As a student and researcher, I see how many people struggle to realize the benefits of technology for their written work. To me, Scribble is an opportunity to help people work more efficiently on solving their homework and research problems.

    I graduated from Princeton in 2016 with a Bachelors of Arts in Politics. I love languages and studying ways that peoples communicate across cultures and distance. After graduating, I worked in Jordan surrounding the Syrian refugee crisis, where I saw a lack of effective ways of sharing ideas and work. Most funding and development planning would be happening thousands of miles away, but depended upon information and feedback from local sites. Without much technology, the teams I led would have mostly handwritten notes after site visits, ideas for new camp plans would be confused and scattered across other teams, and ultimately they would be shared as pictures or re-typed in lengthly email exchanges. I am excited to be part of an effort to provide a more effective way to brainstorm, develop and reorganize ideas through a digital platform.

    I'm a senior in the Math department at Princeton who enjoys the challenge of solving difficult problems. Having grown up in San Jose, CA I've seen firsthand the ability of new technology, computer science and entrepreneurial spirit to change the face of the world. In my free time I enjoy playing volleyball for the club team or going to programming competitions on the ACMICPC team.
