Thought for the day

Being honest when disseminating research results is not a great idea.

I should know this.

To Listen

To listen is to collect information except for people from authoritarian societies where to listen is to follow orders.

Mirrors and fatherhood

For one of those gnostics, the visible universe was an illusion or (more precisely) a sophism. Mirrors and fatherhood are abominable because they multiply and disseminate that universe.

or

Mirrors and copulation are abominable, because they increase the number of men.

– Unnamed heresiarch of Uqbar

From Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius – a do-I-even-need-to-specify-short story in Labyrinths by Jorge Luis Borges. It has been over 8 years since I read the book – my personal copy packed in a box somewhere in Metuchen, NJ. I bought the book at Stockholm airport this week for a friend and couldn’t help reading it over my evening cuppa.

I certainly can’t gift the book to my friend now. On the bright side, I get to read Borges again. Ha!

Back to bloging and CCS

It has been over a year and a half since I blogged. This is mainly because I had (have) been writing a lot for work – my thesis, papers, reports etc. – that I could not bring myself to indulge in yet another writing ‘project’. Even though the writing for work shows no sign of reducing, I figured it is about time I started blogging. This has been prompted by a few questions my friends and acquaintances have regarding my work and Carbon Capture and Storage in particular. I will try to present my views on CCS and industrial energy efficiency.

There are quite a few blogs out there on renewables etc., but hardly anything on CCS. Hopefully this blog will serve that purpose. This does not imply that the blog will preclude all other interests if mine.
