Today I am launching my new website and blog. Coincidentally, today is also the day before the start of the ICRA 2019 conference in Montréal, which I am attending, so I hope that that is a good omen for the future of this venture. At the very least, since I will be presenting a paper here, that can serve as fodder for my first real post. Traditionally I have not been so adept at blog maintenance, but I have learned a lot technically from previous attempts, so here’s hoping that I have finally crossed that threshold point where the urge to learn about and improve upon the technical aspects of the process has been sufficiently quelled to leave breathing space for the urge to add interesting and useful content.
