[A Post-Apocalyptic Time]

Added on 22/12/2012

It is 22nd December 2012 and I am writing from a post-apocalyptic time. Some said the old gods would come to reclaim their lower-race slaves, some said it will be the Sun or some other cosmic tragedy that will suddenly evaporate us all. But something much worse happened - the human race survived and the everyday apocalypse that we cause to this planet continues on. 

So let's happily celebrate by building a few more nuclear weapons. And let's send our soldiers to fight endless and pointless wars, while we all keep preparing for Christmas, one of the biggest opportunities of this blinded commercialised society to forget all its problems for a while. No worries - we can always pay for everything by money borrowed from other countries that borrowed it from other countries that made it out of thin air. And, while our unborn grandchildren pay the price for our ignorance, let's keep wasting our lives and destroying all that has created and nurtured us for so long - it seems like we will have to finish off the Earth the old fashioned way after all.

Why Do Big Companies Get Lazy?

Perhaps unlike many who advocate open-source and free knowledge, I am also pro big corporations. Not because of their often centralised way of operation (which I find somewhat limited), but because people in those corporation must have worked hard to get where they are. Companies like Apple, Microsoft or Blizzard...

Starting my PhD Next Week

I have finally finished making my studio in Southmapton at least decently homey as I am starting my PhD programme on Tuesday. I met some of my classmates yesterday (Saturday) during a barbeque and I am very excited about our future discussions and beer drinking.

My First Journal Publication

After working on it for quite a long time, my paper titled Ultrastable Neuroendocrine Robot Controller was finally accepted for publication in Adaptive Behaviour.

Why I Left Facebook

I decided to delete almost all my activity and all my photos from Facebook when they announced that Timeline would become compulsory. While I really think that Timeline is a bad idea as it lets your history be browsed in a very easy manner, this was not the only reason I left...

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.
