I took the title of this entry from Jerry Weinberg's The Secrets of Consulting. It's great read and worth the $25 investment I made some years ago as I keep on reopening the book every once in a while. Also, It's not just about consulting. All this leads to the substance of this blog. Over time, you may have noticed a change in the frequency of blog entries. There may be more but I have switched to a different order. I keep on refining the model and while I never commit to a specific frequency, I have come to the conclusions that there are entries I enjoy and others that I want to enjoy. Entries I enjoy writing about:
- reality checks
- somebody going through the risky business of making their code/implementation available with examples
- instance of compressive sensing hardware
- comparison between different solvers, piece of hardware
- instance of issues that are deeply connected to making the world a better place (calibration issue for compressive sensing hardware is one...)
- how the world is inherently compressive
- how compressive sensing and attendant techniques are changing the world as we know it..
- how the blog started conversations among y'all.
Entries I yearn to enjoy are those featuring papers:
- with no illuminating figures or few usable insights.
- that show scholarship but not the underlying "how to do it" bit
- that will take me a long while to absorb
- etc ....
I end up writing single entries for subjects I enjoy writing about, while subjects I want to enjoy may get stacked together in one long entry. The illusion is to think that all subjects are equal.
