I know it’s been a while since I posted here. I also know that there’s probably very few people who have stopped by for reasons beyond looking for Still Alive or other tidbits of information, but I think it’s time to turn over a new leaf. Because I’m nearing the end of my academic career (and am now filled with answers on many of the “why’s” of computer science), I feel that some research is in order. Although the New Year is still a month and a half away, I’ve already made my resolution: I am going to strive to learn something new every day, and attempt to describe that knowledge here.
Now, when I say “something new”, I do not mean “a random fact that I happened to overhear today”. Instead, I mean approximately an hour’s worth of research on the topic. My goal here is to provide myself with a deeper understanding of the practical applications of the theory that I have studied at the University of Waterloo. In addition, I feel this experiment will give me a chance to explore many of the interesting topics that I overhear every day. Finally, it is an opportunity for me to improve my comprehension, communication and research skills so that I may better represent my thoughts and ideas in a way that others can understand. For those few people who subscribe to this blog at the time of this writing, I encourage both positive and negative feedback on the ideas and research presented here.
Due to the fact that I am just entering the term-end crunch at school, I will probably not be posting very much until after the holidays (this is a New Year resolution, after all), but I may sneak one or two entries in during the Christmas break. Until then, I will keep anything interesting written down until I have time to research it.
