Recently I did something crazy. I left a great job at University of Chicago developing data transfer software for the research community to start my own company. The company, Clear Abacus, will be providing a software-as-as-service supply chain optimization engine that facilitates transport routing and loading decisions. I am looking forward to all the challenges that lie ahead, both technical and personal.

I’ve been a little busy … well, very busy … this last year, so here is a little update about projects in my life. I finished up my masters thesis this last semester, and started work toward my Ph.D. in computer science at UIC. I am researching rationality in multiagent settings for the UIC Multi Agent Systems laboratory. Particularly, I am looking at ways to update POMDP models from agent experience. Between school, various freelance projects, and a short year long career at CashNetUSA, I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t been posting much, hopefully that will change.

I just returned from a month long vacation in Europe. My wife and I took a budget (hostels and Easy Jet) tour of Europe starting in Ireland, and moving through Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Germany, and England. The trip was a blast, but I’m still glad to be back home. You can see pictures of our trip on Jen’s Picasa album.
While on the trip, I decided to spend more time maintaining this blog. We will see how strong my resolve to do so really is in the next few months. However, since I am paying for the blog, I may as well make more regular use of it. In addition, I think the writing could prove to be therapeutic.

I just thought I’d announce that today, one of the projects I’ve been working on recently went live. Yo Journal is an online personal journal that allows you to keep track of daily entries, categorize those entries, and also keep track of specific types of data like weight, movies, and books. To read more about Yo Journal, you should visit the about page, or the tour. There is a free edition as well as an expanded version for pay that adds features like file uploads and categories.
