This month I didn’t do a very good job of what I’d tried to do last month - which is focus on only a few things. I read widely for a few reasons

  • assigned by professors
  • works by professors who I may want to work with
  • preparation for presentations
  • research for second-year project

I also spent a fair bit of time writing code in an academic context, and this list reflects some of that investigation.

Goals for next month - read less widely. :)
