More content will be added to fill this space at some point in the future.


Another redesign. This time with BlogPower™. Not sure what will happen about content. Probably will get content until I get bored, then wither.

It seems that I haven't been updating my website as often as I should. There's a lot of information that I want to share with people, but I haven't come up with a simple way of getting it all across.

In the mean time, there is a menu to the left there <--

The reason most people have web pages I do not know, however I do like to be able to find out about people by looking at their web pages. I am less interested to find out about their gerbil though. It is like Internet spying, but spying on what they want you to know. So that people can find a little about me I have written these pages.

My PGP/GPG key is available as this file

There is a more blog-style diary here

Computer scientists and trees

Computer science is all about metaphore, and how it enables us to visualise what we are doing, and discuss it with others. A lot of programming experience is about applying metaphore and recognising progamming idioms.

One that we were discussing at work this week was trees. Computer scientists and programmers talk about trees quite often. Trees are the metaphore used for some of the most often used data structures. However we noticed that these are some very confusing trees. We start at the root of the tree, then descend it (depth first) to reach the leaves. Maybe computer scientists spend too much time locked in darkened rooms programming, and never seeing the outside world, but if I were at the root of a tree, and wanted to find leaves I would head upwards, definitely not downwards.
