From Ben's Writing
The following is my attempt to lead a more public life. Not because I think I'm so interesting that anyone will care about the all the same things I find interesting, but rather that one person might find something I have contemplated interesting as well. Maybe doing this will help remove the onus of research on the topic from them. Maybe they will be able to correct a thought I've had. In the worst case, it'll just be a place I can come back to and rediscover the things I've thought about in the past.
Having spent a lot of time reading, viewing and listening to various forms of media, I have, it seems, amassed a great deal of trivia knowledge that serves no real puppose other than making me sound more clever than I really am.
These are likely of no interest to anyone except myself: they are just organizational pages that poorly represent some of my on-going activities.
I don't get out much anymore, but the times that I do, I try to write about. If for nothing else, they serve to remind me where I've been and how I used to think.
These are a few of the things I am most interested in.
- Programming Languages
- Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
- Distributed Systems
- Operating Systems
- Data Mining
