this blog is a response to austen's hacking fitness. i think the bottom line, is that people should find jobs that align to their interests.
wow.. i just got to thinking why i love hacking so much. and i think the answer is that i want to change the world. it seems to me that technology is one of the easiest ways to change the world. look at the information age revolution; microsoft, google, yahoo, myspace, internet news, email, chat. all these things probably changed the world. somehow. everything seems to work with technology. god forbid that we have a power outage!
there is so many things that we can accomplish in the high-tech world. for example, lets cure cancer, by producing faster algorithms that analyze dna (i have no idea if that works, but maybe it could). or maybe change the environment not only with better and cleaner technology; but high-tech can help socially too. see the blog action day.
the bottom line for me is that i want to change the world (for the better of course). technology seems like the easiest way for me to do that. there is something out there for me to do. i know it. i just have to find it.
my plan is to start small. i want to help students. maybe by doing that i help the department and the high-tech industry. maybe by doing that we solve more important problems. and maybe some day, my tech solutions can change the world.
random cool thing of the day
