I was going to write a post about why I love London, but given this week’s events it would seem somewhat misplaced so I’ll postpone that for another time. I’ll just say that a singular isolated event should not affect your general perception of a city. It’s quite lovely when people aren’t rioting and stealing all over the place 🙂
In other news, since I last updated my blog, lots of things have taken place and probably lots more will happen in the following weeks/months. The key things to highlight are that I’ve gotten my Master’s Degree, I moved to London and I’m currently interning with Goldman Sachs. I can’t say too much about the internship because of company policy, but I will say that I am working in one of the core technology teams, I’m learning tons of stuff and I’ve been enjoying it a lot. There are some really smart people around and cool things to work on. Summer is unfortunately quickly coming to an end, but we’ll see where we go from here.
Finally, about some of the things to come. For the last few months, I’ve been thinking about a few ways to restructure my website(s), to both help people get to the right content and to motivate me to be more active as well. Because of my varied interests, I think that many people get here from one post or another and then don’t find what they expect in the rest of the website (analytics also seem to suggest the same thing). Of course tags and categories help, but I think most people will expect some unity in the website, so if they come in reading an Android post, they probably want to see more things like that rather than an update about my life or a post about “fitness”. So I am considering separating three areas to my website, keeping this as the personal blog, starting a separate technical blog and starting a third, brand new, “writing” blog. More about that later 🙂 There’s more to this concept as well, as I am trying to decide where to draw the line between things that are worth blogging about or things that would work better as a question and answer on a StackExchange site. After all there’s no point in reinventing the wheel. So look out for some changes in the following weeks and hopefully more than one post every three months.
