another-poor-indian-grad-student dept.

After putting down people with graduate study plans for years, I am preparing to join their ranks. I am glad I never really lost my way irretrievably in the maze of temptations that jobs can be. There is nothing more empowering that education. A job can provide this, but I had felt a bit stagnant, lost, mentorless for a few years now. I think a new environment is the only cure for this malaise, and no better place than a decent US graduate school.

I am putting these thoughts down as a personal amusement, really, to see how much I agree/disagree with them a few years down the line.

Johns Hopkins, Fall 07, Field will be something software-related ;-) (I'm going for breadth, not depth).

Naah, its more of a personal thing. I just think that computer technology is at an inflection point right now and I just need a good perch from where to observe where things are going for a bit.

There are multiple things that will change the nature of software products and design coming in the next few years that someone sitting in the trenches may not be in a position to 'grok' or exploit those radical paradigm shifts :-).

I just don't want to be a mute observer to momentous things when they happen.
