Alright, this is take three now. After a failed attempt at a "personal ramblings" blog, and another failed attempt at building the next huffpo, I think it's time to once again litter the web with my crap and mixed metaphors.
What makes this blog different from the previous two? In truth, probably nothing; I'll be surprised if it makes it past a dozen posts. We'll see.
Well then, why put the blog up? In part because I just bought a domain and need something to put here, and in part because this time I have some idea what I want to write about. I've been tinkering with an idea for a new programming language — because if there's anything the world needs, it's another programming language — and I wanted a place to explore some of those ideas, as well as general thoughts about programming. I might throw in some politics too. I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time!
PS: One of the earlier posts in my "personal ramblings" blog was about a set I humbly named Shavitian Subprimes. It's a cool little set, in which not only is every number prime, but every substring of the number forms a number that's also prime. For instance, 373 is such a number because 373, 73 (from 373), 37 (from 373), 7 (from 373) and 3 (from 373 and 373) are all prime. A friend burst my bubble when he told me that this set has already been discovered and cataloged. Womp womp.
