  • Mood:
Still very busy ... nothing new there. I had to work on Saturday and Sunday. I was hoping to rest up from a very busy previous week, but wasn't able to, so I'm going into this week tired, which isn't good, because there are a lot of things going on that I need to be on top of.

Just wanted to point out another interesting blog by a theorist, Shtetl-Optimized. I'll be checking in on it and posting links here to content I find interesting there, time permitting. One really long thread I really found interesting was where the author asked his readers to ask him (almost) anything. Several topics were covered that I have touched on in the past. I wish I'd seen it earlier; perhaps he'd have some comments on why engineering is hard, how to better prepare for an insight/intution-based test, etc.

(As a side note, after reading some of this blog, I realized quantum computing is a bigger deal than I'd previously thought it was.)
