Or Would You Rather Be a Fish
Speaking of finishing up, I've been thinking a lot about the future. What am I going to do with my life? Stay in academia? After all, why only do 21 years of your life institutionalised when you can do so many more? Do I head to industry? Which industry? Do I try to combine the two with an R&D job somewhere?
One aim my wife and I definitely have is to see the world, to live in foreign climbs. One part of the world we would very much love to move to is Australia. We've been searching around, but there doesn't appear to be much research in my field. Australia does a lot with health sciences - which is actually the field of the first Dr Nowson, my aunt.
So if anyone would like to employ a computational linguist, with a good working knowledge of blogs and a background in computer science and artificial intelligence, preferably, but by no means exclusively, in the southern hemisphere, then I am most certainly your man. Please.
