I made a new girl (space) friend this week, and together we have founded the awesome peoples' league (Bay area chapter). She and her fiancé are into boardgaming in addition to using free operating systems. They also watch many similar TV shows and enjoy hanging out and playing the same games I do (and in a good level).
As part of my ongoing commitment to resurrect this blog, I'll tell you all that I'm happy. It's amazing how happy a friend could make you when you need one!
In other news, I am in the process of writing an NSF grant proposal, which basically means write something about your research and beg for money.
One of the great things about being a postdoc is that you have students who do all the work, so I will have at least two papers submitted to IJCAI (probably more), and all of them in collaboration with different authors, both here and in Israel.
BTW, If you like my blog, please comment so I'll be encouraged to write more!
