Short-term plans: happy with research, thinking about internship?

Mark Chignell, Gordon Lee, Julie Waterhouse and I discussed my
research plan this morning. I’m really lucky to have such wonderful,
wonderful mentors!

I mentioned my interest in living in San Francisco for a short while
to Mark, who suggested an internship after I finish my coursework,
while I’m writing up my thesis. It’d be a good idea, I think. I’d like
to get a feel of the tech scene there, and I’d also like an
opportunity to plunge deeply into technical stuff.

I love the Philippines, and I’m looking forward to sharing a lot of
ideas with the geeks back home. I’m a lot more effective at connecting
with people when I can bump into them face-to-face, so I hope to find
a way to bridge worlds by spending some time abroad and some time at
home.

That would be just right…
