I'm interested in almost everything about science & technology, and I've always wanted to invent things that benefit people. I have a small lab at home.
I admire people who have their own educated opinions and people who are curious about how things work.
If you're Taiwanese and reading this, you should describe your political affiliation and you opinions on nuclear energy first.
Learning new things in the meanwhile..
programming : I hate it as a job, though.
Playing Go : Haven't played for a long time. Let's play!
I watch game of thrones. Mainly because medieval lifestyle is interesting.
I also watch Big bang theory, but I think it peaks at season 2.
Most books are outdated now, it's better to look for information on the web. Research results needs a year to get into textbooks. I haven't been able to finish some books like Differential Geometry and QFT, but I am working on that.
Music : Classical music (mostly Chopin, some Liszt and Mozart and Beethoven)
Food : salmon, sushi, black tea with lots of honey, matcha, blueberries.
My mind hasn't been very active recently, can't think of anything now.
2. Making science accessible to the masses. Science still belongs to the privileged few, due to the inaccessibility of instruments. The high price of these machines are mainly due to the market being small, which is an chicken-and-egg problem. What can we do to change this?
For example a PCR machine simply heats stuff and cools it down, the principle is as simple as an oven but the price is a lot higher. That is what makes research limited to academics or big companies.
3. Geoengineering. We're not using the desert and the sea enough. Aquaculture on the ocean could provide more food than we produce now. Desert sand could provide iron for ocean fertilization, silicon for diatom growth, which contribute nearly 40% of oxygen production on earth.
4. Biotechnology. Why is it when people talk about biotechnology they think of drugs? What about making algae strains that could colonize mars, or bacteria that can degrade plastic? Why isn't Western blot automated, but instead takes hours to perform and require a trained master degree student?
Heading downtown to explore new places.
Or if you're into technology, including RF circuits, semiconductor devices, protein synthesis, vacuum systems, nanofabrication, feedback control, precision sensing, hardware hacking, etc..
