Ignoring Mortality We Worship Mediocrity

This video is a good inspiration for us to gain courage to be innovative and bold I'm trying to build up the courage to grow a mohawk -:^) Only then I will feel like I'm truly living up to my ideals.

Happy 2009

Got married in December! I am now a man with responsibilities, another reason I've been studying for my prelims now. Need to finish my PhD! Among the subjects, I've picked differential geometry and complex analysis as a minor. Reviewing math after some motivation from research feels really productive. And, man, times have changed - during my PhD years I've witnessed the rise of core information technologies such as Youtube & Wikipedia (sounds already like grandpa talk!). What great tools to study math with. Check out this video on mobius transformations (related to homographies in projective geometry): Which goes back to support an old point of mine: computer technologies have an explosive (exponential) effect in improving society.
