There are a number of nerdy subjects that I’ve wanted to write about for a long time, but I haven’t really had the right venue for it. My poker blog occasionally strays from poker. But, it’s probably not fair to the people who come there to read about poker to do that too often, so I save it for things that I feel a strong moral compulsion to discuss.
So, I created a new venue.
This blog will be standard fare–If I have a thought about something other than poker and feel like writing about it, I’ll probably write about it here. (I’ll still maintain my poker blog in the sense that I won’t rule out writing future posts for it–I’ve even got some in mind—but, as a blogger with a history of breaking promises to his readers, I ain’t makin’ no more of those right now.)
Topics of interest include virtually anything nerdy, with a specialization in computer science theory. (I’m currently waiting to hear back from PhD programs in that field.) I assume that my readership will start out as roughly the nerdier 10% of the people who read Subject: Poker or my other blog, most of whom don’t have formal math training. So, for now at least, I’ll try to keep the content accessible to laypeople.
