First Post

I recently started my PhD at MIT, and I plan to start keeping a blog to document interesting thoughts and projects that don’t merit the full research-paper treatment. You can consider this an introduction to the blog. (I consider it a test to make sure the website is functioning properly.) I planned to keep a blog last year, but got far too busy and never did much writing. Some of the thoughts that might have become blog posts instead morphed into op-eds at The Atlantic or found their way into research seminars. Now that I’m back to doing full-time technical research, however, I’ll try to be more conscientious about posting.
