  • Mood:
Found another blog from a CS theorist, WebDiarios de Motocicleta. This guy stirred up a lot of controversy because he complained about not being the first theory hire chosen by the UCSD CS department. (As you might expect, he got ripped for this by posters in his blog.) However, he does make some interesting (IMO) comments on subjects such as teaching and whether it's better to get a research position in academia or a lab.

As for me, still very busy, although things have quieted down a little. I'm sleeping a little better also. I still have disconcerting dreams every so often, but at least I'm waking up in the middle of the night less.

Speaking of CS theory, I owe you all a memory of my first days of grad school, roughly 20 years ago.
