Greetings, totality of existence!

Hi, folks.  I decided to take the plunge into blogging in the open, based on the recent successful tweeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics conference in Singapore.  I found that I paid more attention to the talks by tweeting them, and so will now experiment to see if full-on blogging makes me more productive.  My previous track record with blogging is that I never managed to make it quite work for me, but then I never tried to blog my professional life, so perhaps the confluence of real life and bloggery will actually work.

So expect to see occasional posts on computer science, linguistics, computational linguistics, and so on—including life in the DC metro area and at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I am currently working on a computer science PhD.  Interesting things I pick up on the Internet may also appear here.
