My 8th grade English teacher would be proud of me. This afternoon, I’m giving a talk to a bunch of colleagues. Not only am I looking forward to it, but I think they will actually get something useful out of listening. I hope they appreciate it.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
