Sagas

As I get up to speed on new technologies, some things have taken some figuring out. I’m interested not only in the conclusions — what worked — but also in the process by which a conclusion is arrived at. By recording my process as well as the conclusion eventually reached, I hope to be able to look back from the end, see where I took wrong turns, and draw lessons from my mistakes. I hope to thus improve my research process so that I can arrive at conclusions more efficiently in the future. (I even have some posts on this meta-topic under the tag.)

So I present these series in their goriness — dead ends, rabbit trails and all. Perhaps they’ll be useful to someone else as well!
