how far we've come and how little I know
Progress is awesome. This week has largely been a reading week for me; I'm trying to get up to speed on a new idea that we're working on. As a result I've been downloading and printing out lots of scientific papers (I think I killed a few trees). I know, reading scientific papers doesn't seem too exciting, but the awesome part is that a whole lot of these papers were printed before I was born. The oldest one I'm reading was published in 1954.
