PhD Exam

I hate exams and the spontaneous condition that they create. I'm walking to my PhD comprehensive exam with a hope that for a long time this is it, the last classic exam. Quite stressed, but looking forward to the "DONE" state.

PS: I passed and I'm now a PhD candidate. DONE! :-)

Me on BBC

My blog was featured on the "World Today" program on BBC this evening. I talked to BBC this afternoon in a local studio. It's a short piece about a website named "We Feel Fine" that is neat work on visualization of emotional writings on blogs. You can listen to the program here. (My short piece is around the 49th minute).

PS: Apparently the new daily program has been substituted. So the above link doesn't have my piece anymore :-(
