I'm back from Innsbruck, Austria, where I had a great time. The experience was certainly much better than I expected, considering I spent almost no time in planning any sightseeing because I was more preoccupied with preparing for the conference. I do feel the need to say this: even if you don't know how to ski, you definitely want to pay a visit to one of the ski resorts and take a lift up to a peak, where you will have your breath taken away by the sights.
Welcome to my world! The world you have just entered is a pretty bland one. I work, play, and travel just like any person. I do have some uncommon interests and an occasionally warped perspective. This world has yet to reflect many of my eccentric qualities, however.
My full name is Yoo Chul Chung, and I am not a very talkative person. This is true for both my online and offline lives, which explains why I have not been a big fan of instant messaging or parties. I can’t help it, so if someone dies of boredom while talking to me, please don’t arrest me.
I maintain the blog Stochastic Scribbles, where I write about anything random that catches my fancy.
I'll be heading to Innsbruck, Austria next week for a conference presentation. The city appears to be a well-known skiing region, amongst other things, so it might be a waste not to ski at least once when I'm there. Maybe I'll ski after all the conference sessions are over in the afternoon or evening on the last day I'm there. Or maybe I'll just take a walk through the streets because I'll feel too tired or too cheap to do anything else. The one thing I am sure of is that I'm taking my camera with me.
I finally bungee jumped yesterday.
I have just graduated from KAIST as a Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science. As I expect would be typical for graduation ceremonies, today's graduation ceremony at KAIST's newly built sports complex was a crowdy affair.
Today is my first official day of work at the National Institute for Mathematical Sciences. It bodes well that I am still breathing at the end of the day, although I have yet to get my own computer, an identification card, email address, etc. And I'm already on a business trip tomorrow ...
