New Website

Today I finished porting the content of my blog to this location.  It was a tedious process, but I think this is a more user friendly blogging platform than what I was using before, so it will pay off in the long run.  Blogger is a nice platform because they can host your blog for free, so the only thing I have to pay for to maintain this site is $12/year for the domain.  I'm not a web development expert, and the drag-and-drop nature of Blogger will allow me to produce content a little bit faster, and possibly nicer.

Anyway, I decided to decouple my old website into two components: (1) a personal website which contains mostly static content and is more professional, and (2) this blog, which is more dynamic and informal.  However, there were some aspects of my old website that don't easily fit into either category, such as the pages about my academic interests, so I am going to slowly bring some that content into this blog and discard the rest of it.

Here's a few things that I'm thinking about blogging about next:

  • Game Theory, Group Projects, and Google PageRank
  • Computationally Calculating the Basic Strategy for Blackjack (from old site)
  • An Optimal Strategy for Farkle/Greedy (from old site)
  • A Math+Programming Puzzle (that I haven't solved yet)
  • Machine Learning vs. Statistics
I am actually maintaining a much longer list of possible entries that have been in my backlog for a while.  Since it's been almost a month since my last post (due to the website migration mainly), I will probably publish the shorter ones first.  Anyway, stay tuned for new content coming soon!
