Garth Zeglin, a good friend from Grad school, was staying with me for a few days, and he mentioned that he likes to have two projects going at once. That way, when he gets stuck on one, he can switch to the other for a while. I wonder how this would work in practice? How could it work at work? And how does it interact with the advice I once heard from Bryan Adams, a grad student in Rodney Brooks' lab at MIT? He said when you stop working for the day, you shouldn't completely finish a task, you should leave something very straight forward to do. That way, when you're starting the next day, you can be eased back into "the zone."
I’m a Software Architect at Infinio, a startup I joined in March 2012. I have also worked at Endeca on the core algorithms for their search engine, been the Artificial Intelligence Lead at Rockstar Games New England, and worked at Panjiva, ITA Software and Icosystem. Before that I was a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT, first at the Artificial Intelligence Lab, then at the Media Lab. And before that I was a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute.
