OK, granted this page is a mess, but it hasn't been maintained in ages. It'll get better. I'm out of practice. I'll get better.
And I'll even tidy it up...eventually.
The beginning of a beautiful ... blogship?
What is my job?
I am a de-programmer. (more follows)
What is my job title?
Teacher of Computer Science
Is that an important job?
Depends on where you do it I guess.
Where do you do it?
Inland Ireland. A county called Tipperary. In the relatively sane north, but residing in the cowboy south, in a former colonial town.
Is it dangerous?
Physically or mentally? It's only occasionally physically dangerous, but mentally harmful most of the time depending on circumstances. ;)
You see, I came to the realisation a while back that in the end we could all just be machines. I don't think we are, but it's entirely possible. But whether we are or not, our brains can be programmed. Quite easily, as it happens.
It helps greatly to know that both the brain and the digital computer perform similiar functions, since the digital computer is based on the human brain. Understand one, understand both.
The real challenge is brain de-programming, to enable people to do computer programming. Irish 2nd level education doesn't prepare young people to move directly to 3rd level to do this. That contributes to high drop-out rates.
