Open Science Blog

As a result of incidental recent activity with OpenWorm, I found myself with a Tumblr account with nothing in it. After some thought of writing material related to OpenWorm and open science under my blog for technical content, it occurred to me that I could simply dedicate my Tumblr account to such content.

As such, I welcome you to come visit that blog at http://cheewai1972.tumblr.com/

I also do have plans to slowly step up activity on my other blogs again. It just has been difficult without a workflow that makes me document activity in a systematic and structured way. I would like my content to generally have some sort of coherent use to people who happen to stumble on what I write.

The OpenWorm Project

Over the past 4 months or so, I made a decision to reach out to the OpenWorm Project and volunteer my time to work with the group. It was an attempt to restore some structure and purpose to my life, and for a while I had not been comfortable announcing this until I was sure I could commit and contribute to the group's work. Well now I am.

I intend to blog a little more about this from various perspectives in the months to come - personal thoughts on volunteering professional time and my experiences and perspectives; my thoughts on the technical aspects of the process of Open Science collaborations; and any scientific notes, thoughts, and questions that are generated from my experiences.

I would like to think of this chapter in my life as "rehabilitation." It is a way I could do something useful and productive with my time and skills, and as a means to convince myself and perhaps eventually future potential employers that my skills are worth something to someone.

Update: Added Software Development Interests

Added a list of my software development interests under my "Interests" tab. This is part of an attempt to put a little bit more focus and definition into what I am interested to do with my professional life, whether it be for research/academia or industry.
