I am so excited to finally have my own blog and to have found such a lovely theme. The idea for the name of the blog, “Subject to Change”, stems from my short attention span and the need to explore.

Why a blog? Two reasons I can think of.

First, I like to write and I need to write to make my oral conversation more concise and eloquent. Why waste words in oral conversation merely because I am struggling to find the right words? Better to hone my skills in recalling the right words in a written form where I am only wasting my own time to find “le mot juste” so that I sound more direct and laconic in person and don’t waste your time.

Second, I am a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at NYU and as such, am being trained as a scientist and a researcher, and scientists need to write to share their ideas with peers who can change their minds. Though this is often done in a peer-reviewed journal, many of the problems that I am interested in are more vernacular and immediate and I can’t think of a freer pulpit than a blog. But that is subject to change.

Very good! So what do you have planned for your first (or, technically, second) argument? How about the benefit programming could have for the masses?

I always thought you would grow up to be a writer not a math geek.
