  •    
    Friday January 26, 2024
  • I feel I spend the majority of my time trying to convince others that I am an idiot, and yet the message does not go through. I am still asked to comment on this and that, under the assumption that I possess some kind of authority. I wonder if I should change(...)

  • George Colburn’s Irish Wake

  •    
    Tuesday July 18, 2023

  • The future of academia

  •    
    Wednesday April 5, 2023
