September Plans

August 28, 2013

In the last few weeks the things I have spent most of the last few months working on have ended. I have handed in my Master’s dissertation ten days ago, I had the last interview for Hacker School on Monday and I gave my first Quantified Self talk last Thursday.

While I still don’t have a decision from Hacker School, I have been thinking about how to spend September. I was working a lot in the last months and was very busy. This month I want to change gear, slow down, read and think. We’re going to a buddhist Monastery in Scotland for two weeks and that will be perfect for that.

But I also want to deepen my understanding in some areas and I’ve decided to focus on cryptography and read a few books in that area. I’ve settled on:

  • The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography
  • Understanding Cryptography: A Textbook for Students and Practitioners

I also want to read some science fiction books and I’ve settled on William Hertling and will start with his book Avogardo Corp.

And finally I plan to read at least one book about buddhism although I haven’t made a choice for that yet.
