Velveteen Rabbit Syndrome
I was the kind of kid who felt really bad for neglecting any particular toy. Maybe I should blame The Velveteen Rabbit, but I definitely thought my toys had feelings and I was very worried about hurting them. I’m having those same feelings right now about this website. I mean, I am old enough to know that websites don’t have feelings. And I managed to let go of my Myspace page without any twinge of guilt. But I have definitely been neglecting this blog in favor of PhD + Epsilon, the blog write for the American Mathematical Society. They do pay me, after all, and those two posts pretty much scratch my blogging itch every month. However, I did want to stop by here and at least say: check out my posts at PhD + Epsilon!
I guess I can add some more news, because there are many things that I haven’t written about there. One exciting math thing that happened is that I was awarded an NSA Young Investigator grant to support some of my research for the next two years. That is really exciting for me! The support begins this summer and I hope get a good chunk of time to spend on some other neglected projects, a.k.a. some hard research problems.
