This is my very first and therefore utterly serious post as a guest blogger for the Cognitive Edge site. When I was invited to do this, I felt both happy and worried. Happy because it’s a tremendous honor to write for such a select and intelligent audience. Worried because I had so much to say, but had to wait for four or five months before being able to do so.

Now these months have passed, like whoosh, and I find that what I had to say is perhaps less interesting than I then imagined. Some topics just faded. Others are off limits as I am forbidden to discuss work. And others again are – well – important for me personally, but perhaps not exactly what people visiting this site are looking for.
