So here I am...
But I might be away for a while. Why? Because I have a few things to do which might not give me time to blog as frequently as I would like to (and as my dear says, "Why do you announce, E? You will change your mind anyway?"). Firstly, I would like to return to the world of technical reading and hacking around (which I haven't done since 2005). Secondly, I am ... well, doing things. Thirdly, I want to work on something which I just thought about (and hence, the post). I would like to peek into the reader's ample resources (I restrict my curiosity to the contents of your mind) in helping me with this. I plan on writing a script (and there she goes again, "Why, E? Why?") which will, like a beautiful re-done Gaussian algorithm, wave in and out of the protagonist's life culminating in the rather decisive mid-life where he (or maybe she) did something which is, well, interesting. This script will question the commonly held assumption that if you know the beginning and the end then you will most likely know what happened in between. Have you ever seen a movie directed like that? A movie which alternated between a man's beginning and end and closing with what he did in between which makes the end possible given the beginning but still something which the viewer never imagined? Please let me know of any such movie that you might recall as I would like to study it.
