A website, for practice this is; constantly broken, therefore, everything shall be.
― Mise

The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.
― Harper Lee

Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.
― Mahatma Gandhi

Anti-social behaviour is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists.
― Nikola Tesla

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.
