I decided to start a blog.
- It’s a good way to keep track of my thoughts and solutions to problems.
- It always surprised me that my problems (however obscure), had already been written about.
Those two reasons made me want to share my experiences with challenging issues, whatever they are, and what I learned. This blog will allow me to formally go over those experiences but also allow me to speculate as to how to approach problems. I hope,(though I’m wary of promising) a cohesive methodology might emerge.
The blog is named IABDB. Because in some ways, I feel like It’s All Been Done Before. That is, in some form or another everything I say will have been studied by someone far more qualified than me. Yet, an important corollory, I believe is that my own experience with the problem and the random events in my life, will sometimes lead me in a unique direction to solving and approaching the problems.
So, my goal then, is to renew it all.
nihil sub sole novum – There is nothing new under the sun – אֵין כָּל חָדָשׁ תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ
renovo – renew – תתחדש
